Load Library failed with error 126: The specified module could not be found."

This error can happen due to the following known causes: 

  • The application is being accessed remotely via an RDP client and is connecting by default to a built-in Intel video card.
  • The graphics card driver is not up to date.
  • Conflicting graphic cards in the machine.
  • Missing or corrupted system files.

The RDP client is using a default Intel video card
When using RDP to connect to a remote machine, the error could be related to the RDP session itself.  However, what may be occurring is a conflict between the video card specified by the RDP connection, and the one used by GibbsCAM on the remote machine. RDP is connecting by default to a built-in Intel video card, and not the video card used by GibbsCAM.

The solution is to disable the Intel video card, and restart the RDP session, forcing it to use the video card on the computer used by GibbsCAM. 

Graphics Card driver is not up-to-date
You can check to see what graphics processor your computer is using by:
-Windows 7/8 - Right click on your desktop background->Screen Resolution->Advanced Settings

-Windows 10 - Display Settings->Advanced Display Settings->Display Adapter Properties

Check the "Adapter Type" your computer is using.  It should be either an Nvidia or AMD card.  If it shows Intel graphics it means your computer is not utilizing a dedicated video card, which is required.

If it shows a video card, click the "Properties" button, then go to the 'Driver' tab and check the "Driver Date".  Make sure it is recent, usually within the past few months is good.  If it is older you will want to go the manufacturer's website and download the latest driver for the card.

Conflicting graphic cards in the machine
Disable the one of the graphic cards and relaunch GibbsCAM.

Missing or corrupted system files
Perform a system file checker scan and repair the corrupted items. Refer to Windows support: Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files for steps to perform this.
