"Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly"

  • I just reinstalled windows because of some problems i had, know whenever i start my PC say 2 or 3 minutes after start up a get a pop error saying

    "Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly"

    I uninstalled the wireless software and driver and reinstalled but i still get the error, does anyone have any suggestions to what may be causing this? thanks.
  • I have the same error with a Latitude D810 & a Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN MiniPCI Card.  I haven't been able to find any information on this message.  I even removed the software, installed a version 3 of it and got the same error.  Maybe Dell will step up to the plate & post a fix???
  • Hi guys,
    I just started to get the same problem, about 2 or 3 minutes after startup also.

    The program's icon is the same as the "Wireless Configuration Utility" in Control Panel.

    Now it started happening right after I restarted my computer, from fiddling with windows services (Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services)

    Here's the website I was following:
    http://www.overclockersclub.com/guides/windows_xp_services_2.php

    Perhaps it is linked in with one of these Windows services?

    Hopefully this will shed some new light onto the situation and I'll let you know if I find a service linked with this message.

  • Hi all,

    Back to the beginning. The reason it seems I may be going off on this little tangent is because I received that very problem e problem "Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly" after following this guide to fiddle with windows services
    http://www.overclockersclub.com/guides/windows_xp_services_2.php

    So i've undone all the changes made from that guide, and my problem was fixed, so now i've tried this guide http://www.jasonn.com/turning_off_unnecessary_services_on_windows_xp without getting a single error afterwards.

    So what i've done is made of a copy of the list of services from overclockersclub, and removed all the services from that list, that I have found from jasonn.com

    Now our potential culprit is one or two of these 45 instead of out of 76.

    I have exams to prepare for over the next few days, but if some of you are ok, we could split the workload 15 services each between us. (Now I see a fair few people viewing this topic, please if you feel you have the time to help, even doing 5 services would do the world of good.)

    All that has to be done is change the service it to it's opposite (automatic if disabled, disable if automatic), reboot and wait your 3 minutes or so and see if it fixes the error.

    Hope we can find a solution to this problem.

    BTW, thanks for the post.
  • Hi guys,
     
    It's good to see some interest in fixing this problem.
     
    I'm on holidays and don't have the internet readily available.  Try and give it a go, i'll should be back in 6 or 7 days.
     
    thanks,

    Only problem is if it is a couple of services and my group only holds one. If I had a working system I could knock off one at a time and wait for the error message.

    Be careful of disabling the PNP service!
  • >Be careful of disabling the PNP service!

    Correction, be careful of disabling any automatic service that you can't 'Stop'.
  • Check out:

    http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=si_wireless&message.id=13894

    It didn't work for me but the one message points to
    COM+ Event System
    or System Event Notification

    The second looking fairly obvious now.
  • I got mine to work.
    I had to install com+ (I installed DTC also but not sure if I needed to).

    The COM+ service came out as Started and manual. The DTC service is manual and not started.
  • Excellent!

    Thanks for your input, I hope this thread helps all who have run into this problem.

    enjoying the small amount of holidays left,

    John
  • You know that com+ is huge! It is a pity to have to install it to just remove a 3 minute delay.

    If anyone knows how to satisfy the wireless utility for this notification without the need for com+, post it here please.

    Possibly another application.

  • I would like to say Thank You Very Much, after a 2 day struggle with my network you had the fix. So glad I found this 

  • Man, what a lot of time I've spent on this...

    This popup started occurring soon after the arrival of my brand new Inspiron One 2310 and I tried everything.  Didn't help that my Service Tag still isn't recognised by Dell online!

    Tried setting COM+ to automatically start up as above... no joy - still getting the 'notification dll is not registered...' message soon after start up.

    Got through to Gizmo help and, after a couple of false starts over a few weeks, and despite the fact that this is clearly a Dell proprietary software problem, finally cracked it with disabling a service called 'DW WLAN Tray Service' through MSCONFIG.  This Dell Wireless tray service is set to automatically start up and, as I understand it, provide Peer Net Connection if you want to use your computer as your home's WiFi or just connect a device wirelessly direct to your computer.  I can't see a need for it (at the moment) in my place.

    So, give that a try or, if you're not big on actually disabling services, just try resetting that tray service to 'Manual' and 'Stopped' through SERVICES.  Doesn't seem to impact on the computer's ability to connect to my Wifi.  Bottom line - everything still works and WITHOUT THAT ANNOYING POPUP!!

    For those that still want to use that service for Peer Net Connection, I dunno what to tell you.
