"The program (VUDesktopToast.exe - System Error) can't start because mfc110u.dll is missing from your computer"

I have just upgraded win 8 from win 7 on my sony vaio laptop. However, now when I start, on the screen it says "The program (VUDesktopToast.exe - System Error) can't start because mfc110u.dll is missing from your computer. Try installing to fix this problem'. So, please let me know how can I fix it?

Same issue here...

 

After some investigation I found that it is the VAIO update application that runs in the background.

 

For now I uninstalled VAIO Update from "Programs" in the control panel - you can easily get to the Control Panel by clicking the Windows Key + "x" and selecting "Control Panel".

 

Updates are still possible through the "VAIO Care" application, just the checking and notification of updates will stop functioning.

 

I hope this helps!

Hi Duy MinhDinh,

I understand you are having some issues with a program.
Kindly answer these questions so I can get a better understanding of the issue

 

1. Do you get this error immediately on start up?
2. Before upgrading, do you remember using a the program "VUDesktopToast.exe"?
3. When running the Upgrade Assistant, did you get a notification about any
incompatible programs?

 

Kindly try these methods to check if the issue can be resolved

 

Method 1: Run the Safety Scanner

http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

Note: Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means there is a potential for data loss.
 


Method 2: Start the system in cleanboot to check if the issue persists

Step 1: Follow these steps to start the computer in clean boot.
a)Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.
b)In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.
c)Click the ‘Boot’ tab and uncheck ‘Safe Boot’ option.
d)On the ‘General’ tab, click to select the option ‘Selective startup’, and then click
to clear the option Load startup items check box.
e)On the ‘Services’ tab, click to select the ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ check box,
and then click ‘Disable all’.
f)On the ‘Startup’ tab, click ‘Open Task Manager’. In the Task Manager window under
startup tab, right click on each startup item which are enabled and select ‘Disable’.
g)Click ‘OK’, and then click Restart.

 

Step 2: Enable half of the services
a)Follow ‘steps 1a ‘and ‘1b’ to start the System Configuration utility.
b)Click the ‘Services’ tab, and then click to select the ‘Hide all Microsoft services’
check box.
c)Click to select half of the check boxes in the Service list.
d)Click ‘OK’, and then click ‘Restart’.

 

Step 3: Determine whether the problem returns.
a)If the problem still occurs, repeat ‘step 1’ and ‘step 2’. In step 2, click to clear
half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Service list.
b)If the problem does not occur, repeat ‘step 1’ and ‘step 2’. In ‘step 2’, select only
half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Service list. Repeat these steps until
you have selected all the check boxes.
c)If only one service is selected in the Service list, and you still experience the problem,
the selected service causes the problem. Go to ‘step 6’. If no service causes this problem, go to
‘step 4’.

 

Step 4: Enable half of the Startup items.
If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To
determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat ‘step 1’ and ‘step 2’ without
selecting the ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ check box in either step.

 

Step 5: Determine whether the problem returns.
a)If the problem still occurs, repeat ‘step 1’ and ‘step 4’. In ‘step 4’, click to clear half
of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Startup Item list.
b)If the problem does not occur, repeat ‘step 1’ and ‘step 4’. In ‘step 4’, select only half
of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Startup Item list. Repeat these steps until you
have selected all the check boxes.
c)If only one startup item is selected in the Startup Item list, and you still experience the
problem, the startup item that is selected in the list is the service that is causing the problem. Go to ‘step 6’.
d)If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat ‘step 1’ and ‘step 2’ without selecting the ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ check box in either step.

 

Step 6: Resolve the problem.
After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program
manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration utility,
and then click to clear the check box for the problem item.

 

Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.
a)Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.
b)In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.
c)On the ‘General’ tab, click the ‘Normal Startup’ option, and then click ‘OK’.
d)When you are prompted to restart the computer, click ‘Restart’.

 


Hope this helps. Feel free to get back to us if you have any other questions.
