Prepare Record Failed! #0 In Capture My Screen



It appears that this error is due to some MS Security Updates.
(Credit goes to myguggi for finding these)

If you are receiving this then these are the 3 you want to remove!


Control Panel – Programs and Features – View installed updates


Search for them one at a time and uninstall one. (thinking they are around 2/12/16) You can skip the ‘Reboot’ until all 3 are gone.

It should work again as soon as you finish the reboot. Worse case, do a repair.


Edit: Another possible solution has been brought to my attention and that is re-registering a particular DLL...


REGSVR32 c:\windows\system32\qcap.dll


Cut and paste that into your Start - Search (Win 7 and XP) or Ask me anything in Win 10


And yet another possible workaround is to turn Voice OFF in the settings:



(this does not effect Audio, only your microphone voice input)


If you have any other issues, please start a New Topic, as this one is locked.
