Libronix Logo (Splash Screen) disappears at startup

Libronix Logo (Splash Screen) disappears at startup

Problem:

When starting the Libronix Digital Library System, the Libronix logo (splash screen) appears and then disappears soon afterwards. The program never opens.

Follow the steps under Solution 1 below, and try to open Libronix before going on to each of the next solutions.

Solution 1:

Check to see if Libronix is running in Compatibility mode (Windows 2000/XP/Vista): 

  • Right-click on the Libronix shortcut on the desktop and click Properties. 
  • Click on the Compatibility tab and make sure the box Run this program in compatibility mode for: is unchecked.  Also make sure that all boxes under Settings are unchecked. 

Solution 2:

This problem can be caused by incorrect registry entries for the Microsoft XML Parser. To fix the problem, you must register the MSXML4 component manually:

In Windows XP or below: 

  • Click Start > Run.
  • Type or copy and paste the line below, then click OK:
    regsvr32 MSXML4.dll
  • A RegSvr32 message should pop up saying "DllRegisterServer in MSXML4.dll succeeded." Click OK
  • If Windows 98 or ME is installed, restart your computer.

In Windows Vista:

  • Click on Start button and click into the Start Search box (click on image below).

               

  • Type cmd.exe. When cmd.exe (or cmd) appears at the top of the Start Menu under Programs,
    right-click on the filename and choose Run as administrator.
    •  If a User Account Control (UAC) window appears asking for permission, click Continue.
    • A command prompt window will open (click on image below).

  • Type regsvr32 MSXML4.dll next to the prompt (>) and press Enter. (For Vista 64-bit, type: regsvr32  "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\msxml4.dll" and press Enter). A RegSvr32 message will pop up saying "DllRegisterServer in MSXML4.dll succeeded." Click OK.  

If the RegSvr32 message says it failed to register MSXML4.dll, or if Libronix still does not open, the Microsoft XML 4.0 Parser may need to be installed:

  1. Click here to download the MSXML 4.0 SP2 installation file.
  2. Select Run (or Open) when prompted.
  3. Follow the prompts and click on Install Now in the Install Shield Wizard to complete the installation.

Solution 3:

This problem can be caused by a conflict with another application that uses the same toolbar program as Libronix. To fix the problem, register the toolbar component manually:

In Windows XP or below:

  • Click Start > Run.
  • Type or copy and paste the line below, then click OK:
    regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Libronix DLS\System\ActBar2.ocx"  
  • A RegSvr32 message will pop up saying "DllRegisterServer in C:\Program Files\Libronix DLS\System\ActBar2.ocx succeeded." Click OK
  • Restart your computer for all versions of Windows.

In Windows Vista:

  • Click on Start button and click into the Start Search box.
  • Type: cmd.exe. When cmd.exe (or cmd) appears at the top of the Start Menu under Programs, right-click on the filename and choose Run as administrator.
    • If a User Account Control (UAC) window appears asking for permission, click Continue.
    • A command prompt window will open. 
  • Type: regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Libronix DLS\System\ActBar2.ocx" next to the prompt (>) and press Enter. (For Vista 64-bit, type: regsvr32  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Libronix DLS\System\ActBar2.ocx" and press Enter).
  • A RegSvr32 message will pop up saying "DllRegisterServer in C:\Program Files\Libronix DLS\System\ActBar2.ocx succeeded." Click OK
  • Restart your computer.

Solution 4:

Rename User Preferences:

Windows XP:

  • Open My Computer and navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Libronix DLS\Library. If the Application Data folder is not visible, you will need to change the windows setting so you can see hidden folders:
    • Click on Tools | Folder Options. Click on the View tab, select Show hidden files and folders, and click OK
  • Right-click on the Preferences folder, choose Rename, and change the folder name to OldPreferences; press Enter.
  • Open Libronix. If it is performing properly, leave the new Preferences folder and delete OldPreferences. If the performance has not improved, close Libronix, delete the new Preferences folder and rename OldPreferences back to its original name.

Windows Vista:

  • Open Computer and navigate to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Libronix DLS\Library. If the AppData folder is not visible, you will need to change the windows setting so you can see hidden folders:
    • Click on Organize | Folder and Search Options. Click on the View tab, select Show hidden files and folders, and click OK
  • Right-click on the Preferences folder, choose Rename, and change the folder name to OldPreferences; press Enter.
  • Open Libronix. If it is performing properly, leave the new Preferences folder and delete OldPreferences. If the performance has not improved, close Libronix, delete the new Preferences folder and rename OldPreferences back to its original name.

Windows 98/ME:

  • Open My Computer and navigate to C:\Windows\Application Data\Libronix DLS\Library. 
  • Right-click on the Preferences folder, choose Rename, and change the folder name to OldPreferences; press Enter.
  • Open Libronix. If it is performing properly, leave the new Preferences folder and delete OldPreferences. If the performance has not improved, close Libronix, delete the new Preferences folder and rename OldPreferences back to its original name
