"the procedure entry point regdeletevaluew could not be located in the dynamic link library kernelbase.dll"

Can anyone tell me why I'm getting this error and possibly how to fix it? Thanks.

It would seem that everyone is completely clueless about this error, Ive posted on 5 different forums and, no response yet.

I would just re install windows but before i do i want to find out if there's a more simple way, maybe use the disc "with out re installing windows" To fix the registry, if that's possible..

If it is, I'm not sure how to do it, It doesn't help any that I'm new to windows 7.

In short...

It means that the function used to delete registry entries could not be found, preventing the installer from removing obsolete entries. That may prevent Windows Live from installing successfully, but if the file/function is actually missing, rather than it just being an internal Windows Live glitch, it may prevent a large percentage of programs from functioning properly.

First, restart the computer to see if the problem persists. If so, try a fresh download of the Windows Live installer and, if the issue remains, try running System File Checker to repair Windows system files. Also note whether any other installers/uninstallers report similar issues or fail unexpectedly.


P.S. Some issues take time to receive responses, especially over holiday weekends when most are spending time with their friends and families. Just be patient and a volunteer will address your issues as soon as he/she can.
