I cannot start the program on my pc it says "This application has failed to start because WINUSB.DLL was not found"

I have re-installed twice but with the same result.
I am up to date with all my windows updates.

Please help... I've done this several times to no avail. I loved using tether with my BB and it worked flawlessly. I have yet to get it to work.

I followed these directions exactly, including the installation instructions on when to unplug and when to plug my phone, and now I get the error message "Tether.exe - Bad Image. The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\WINUSB.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Now what do I do?

Cheers,
Randy

Could you try the following Winusb.dll file and save it to c:\windows\system32 ?

All you have to do with the file is just save it to your c:\windows\system32 folder.

Those download links for winusb.dll don't work anymore, I assume a zillion people trying to make tether work swamped those servers.

Microsoft has a knowledgebase article on it but the download isn't there.

Fortunately, I found out that it is the exact same driver in Win7 Basic and up. It is probably the same drive in Vista as well.

Find a Win7 computer, search for winusb.dll and you are sure to find it.

Staff at Tehter? you are welcome but really you should be providing this information yourselves .. free licenses from you to me would be a nice reward.
