Pdfcreator - DLL error

Hi there - first of all sorry for my bad english.

Well i installed PDFCreator 2.5.2 on a fully fresh clean Windows 7 x64 installation. Fully patched with drivers / runtimes / updates.
I cant start PDFCreator. It brings the following error:

“LeaveCriticalSection” wasnt found in the DLL “API-MS-WIN-CORE-SYSINFO-L1-2-0.DLL”

I cant even get to the Config or anything else. Can anyone tell me what to do?
I installed Ghostscript to check if that fixes that, after reading something about Ghostscript and some other DLL errors. But it didnt fix it.

What else can i do?


I have never seen this error, but it looks like it could be related to a faulty .NET component, reinstalling .NET 4 (Client profile) might solve the issue. API-MS-WIN-CORE-SYSINFO-L1-2-0.DLL isn’t one of our DLLs.

Best regards,


Just wanted to tell that deinstalling NET 4.7 and reinstalling NET 4.6.2 fixed the problem. Thank you very much!

Thanks for the feedback, I am glad you were able to solve the issue; I wouldn’t have known what else to suggest:)
