Default uncdms.dll help!!!

Hi All,

I have windows xp sp2, using [commercial software], ie 8,
when I try to download updates for various programs,
I get the following message, "download didn't occur,
due to uncdms.dll missing, try downloading again.

Is this uncdms.dll message an scan, or do I need to
redownload the files again to complete the process?

Is their some free downloading website that I can
access to perform an free downloading of the needed
uncdms.dll to fix the problem?

Any other suggestions welcomed.

Please keep it simple as possible.

Thanks in advance for the assist.

Just a warning, please do not download or install any of the third party software mentioned in the above link.

And why are you still using XP SP2? It is not secure to use SP2. Download the SP3 patch, and upgrade your system to SP3, which will make it more secure.

Yes, please do not install any softwares recommended in the article. Just follow method1 (task 1 and task 2) and that's it. Instead of Perfect Uninstaller use Revo Uninstaller.

Sometimes there are problems with updates if you do not have the latest version of Windows. For that and other reasons you should update to Windows XP SP3 as Anupam suggests.

Have tried downloading wxp sp3 & patch from several sites, with no results.

I keep getting this notice, that "download wan't complete, missing uncdms.dll,
retry again"

Do I need to run antivirus, malire programs for possible problems, when
download uncdms.dll from some software utility program, then retry
downloading wxp sp3 & patch?

If you have a WinXP SP2 CD, I would encourage you to run System File Checker. For information about this utility, please see the following:

jjoe, did you try uninstalling/reinstalling Windows Desktop Search as per the link that George.J provided? Most of the links where I searched for uncdms.dll problem, they provided the same solution.

Hi All,

Just finish using Revo Uninstaller, twice scanned & fixed errors, yet
continue to get this same message "download wan't complete, missing uncdms.dll,
retry again" again.

Would removing windows search solve this problem, please provide simple details?

Update,

I can get to the windows update page in wxp, but after using the express and custom buttons, for updates, the messages says "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view"

also still can't download any .dll fixes or wxp sp3 & patches as well.
