It appears that M$ only issued about five different versions of that file, but you don't tell us the applicable versions involved there -- the one on your system or the requirement for the device you're attempting to install.

1. When confronted with a DLL file problem, a copy of some Microsoft media may already be owned from which the file can be extracted, "Definition and Explanation of a .DLL file (Q87934)".

2. To determine whether the file is a Microsoft issue, access the "DLL Help Database", enter the file name -- including extension in the space provided, and then press Enter (correct spelling and punctuation is recommended). If a list is rendered, simply determine from what media is shown and that is currently owned and extract a copy, "How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files (Q129605)".

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
