1 Procedure Entry Point not found Windows 11 Solution by installing C++ Redistributable
2 Procedure Entry Point not found Windows 11 Solution from Terminal
3 Procedure Entry Point not found Windows 11 Solution installing plugins

Windows 11 has hundreds of processes and services that allow everything in Windows 11 to work properly, but one error that some users run into is the “Procedure entry point not found” error..

 

 

It is important to know that in an operating system, software entry points refer to a point at which process control is transferred from the operating system directly to the program. In the event that an entry point is not found, this indicates that the file necessary to transfer the process is damaged or not present.

 

An advantage of this error in Windows is that the message has the syntax "The entry point of the procedure FILENAME could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll" which tells us the source or where the process is missing. Usually the error is linked to DLL files which is a dynamic link library file and is a shared resource available to applications..

 

With them, the system does not install a copy in each program folder, but instead uses a shared library of common files in order to optimize performance.

 

TechnoWikis will explain some methods to correct this error in Windows 11..

1 Procedure Entry Point not found Windows 11 Solution by installing C++ Redistributable


This refers to a set of Visual C++ Redistributable packages which are responsible for installing the runtime components necessary to run C++ applications compiled with Visual Studio 2015 but which, being based on them, most applications can give rise to the mentioned bug, the packages are installed with the runtime components for the C Runtime (CRT), Standard C++, MFC, C++ AMP, and OpenMP libraries.

 

Step 1

We can download these packages from the following link:

For this reason, the error appears because the equipment already has the packages.

3 Procedure Entry Point not found Windows 11 Solution installing plugins


At this point we can download a series of Microsoft add-ons which may already be present on the computer thanks to Windows Update but the lack of them can trigger the error.

 

Step 1

First of all we will go to the URL of the .NET Framework in the following link:

 

 .NET Framework

Step 2

Download the recommended version:

The .Net Framework gives us the tools to create applications and services in the cloud, but in the same way, many of the applications that we open in Windows 11 are based on .Net.

 

Step 3

We execute the file and follow the steps of the wizard, it is possible that it is already installed on the PC thanks to Windows Update updates:

Java is a language in which thousands of programs and applications are created so it becomes essential to have it installed in Windows 11.

 

step 14

After this we go to the Shockwave URL:

 

 shockwave

 

Shockwave is part of Adobe and allows you to handle multimedia themes but we validate that it is no longer supported for Windows 11:

step 15

We can click on the download link to confirm the unavailability:

Let's go to the Microsoft Visual J# Redistributable URL:

 

 Microsoft Visual J# Redistributable

 

36

 

This is a plugin for building Visual J# based applications and services and will only run on the .NET Framework but does not support Java Virtual Machines.

 

step 25

Download and run the file:

step 26

We click Next to accept the license:
