This method shows you how to fix this error.
What Causes The Wxfw.dll Error?
The Wxfw.dll error normally shows as:
Unable to load library wxfw – dll.Error Code:31
Unable to load library wxfw.dll. Attempted to load C:\Program Files\The Weather Channel FW\Desktop\wxfw.dll. Error code: 126
This error normally shows when you start your PC or when you start the weather channel program. It is normally caused by registry errors or local administrator access. To resolve this problem please follow the steps below.
How To Fix Wxfw.dll Errors
Step 1 – Start Weather Channel In Administrator Mode
The main reason why the weather channel application fails to load is because Windows tries to access Wxfw.dll without administrator permission. You can fix this error initially by loading the weather channel program in “administrator mode”. If you do not have access to administrator permissions you should see a computer technician.
Step 2 – Reinstall The Weather Channel Software
If you still see an error, it suggests there is either an error with the weather channel software or the files it needs to run. Reinstalling the software will resolve most Wxfw.dll errors including error 126. Here is how to do this:
- Click Start > Control panel > Add/Remove programs
- Locate the Weather Channel software
- Uninstall the software
- Restart your PC
- Reinstall the Weather Channel program
- Test to see if the same errors occur
This should fix most cases of the Wxfw.dll error however if you are seeing this problem still please progress on to step 3:
Step 3 – Clean Out The Registry
Another big cause of the Wxfw.dll errors is the registry database of Windows. The “registry” is a central database which stores all the settings, information and options for your computer, and is where Windows keeps many vital settings that it requires to run. It’s often the case that a lot of registry settings become damaged and corrupted, leading your PC to take longer to run, making it run slower and with a lot of errors. To fix this problem, you should use a ‘registry cleaner’ to scan through your PC and fix any of the damaged or corrupt settings that are inside it. You can see our recommended registry cleaner below:
