wnaspi32.dll does not load.

March 11, 2014 at 00:47:26
Specs: Windows Vista, Amd athlon 1.5gb
When I start CDex, a program that converts audio files to mp3/wma, I get the message that the above file is missing. How do I download it?

When you see the message about the missing .dll it should also ask if you want to use a native ASPI file instead and give you a Yes/No option - choosing Yes should be all that you need to do. Unfortunately I cannot test this on a Vista system to be certain but that's what happens on both Win 7 and Win 8.

If it does not give you the option then it is usually installed as part of programs like Nero so you could always download the trial version of Nero, install it and see if CDEx works then - you can uninstall Nero afterwards having made a copy of the missing file first, just in case.

Incidentally, in case you are tempted, it is not a good idea to download from any of the sites that offer to fix .dll problems, or give you links to download .dll files - many of these sites either cost money or have dubious source files.

What is the exact error message (you seem to be saying it does not load and it is missing but these can be quite different things). It might not be missing at all, just that the install is corrupted.

Have you recently installed CDex or was this working then suddenly failed?

If it was a new install then try a fresh download.

EDIT:
There are other programs (free) that can do this conversion.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The exact message is, "Failed to load the wnaspi32.dll driver! Use the Native NT SCSI library instead?"
You are then given a yes or no option. Choosing either doesn't get the program working.

Thanks.

May I ask again, have you recently installed CDex or was this working then suddenly failed?

The file wnaspi32.dll is not part of Windows - it should have been produced during CDex install and most likely it is present but CDex is unable to load it.

EDIT:
I see that the program is still available for download (dated 2009).

There is some useful information here:
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findb...

I don't believe that downloading a copy of the file is necessarily the right way forward. If you get it from the wrong website at the best you might get the wrong version number and at the worst a virus. It is more likely that the install itself has failed or is in some way corrupted. You can always search to see if Vista can find the file and whether it is already in the CDex folder or elsewhere on the system.

I recall this program - used to have it on my Windows 98.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

CDEx does not install the dll by default - I've checked both systems I use and neither have this file, hence the message about using the alternative instead. The file should, however, be installed with some other software, most notably anything that needs to make use of the burning facilities of your optical drive, hence the suggestion about installing Nero, or anything similar. I actually quite like CDEx because it (usually) does what it is supposed to do with no drama or anything so I would stick with trying to get it to work using my suggestion for a start.
