Solved : Cannot load the DLL xp_md5.dll

Monday, May 23, 2011

Issue : "Cannot load the DLL xp_md5.dll, or one of the DLLs it references. Reason: 126(The specified module could not be found.)."

Solution :

You are missing one dll to keep in this folder "D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\ "

You can download that file from here

Then keep this file in folder "D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\"

Then open your sql server and run this sql query so that you can register this dll in sql server.


USE [master]

EXEC dbo.sp_addextendedproc N'xp_md5', 'D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\xp_md5.dll'
