Why am I seeing an "Ordinal 7 not located….dynamic link…missing” D2D1.dll error?
This specific error could be related to your HP machine and any recent changes made to your overall system. D2d1.dll is a type of DLL file associated with Windows 8 Pro and developed by Microsoft for the Windows OS. Because DLL files are shared files, they exist outside of the software application itself. Most d2d1.dll errors are related to missing or corrupt d2d1.dll files. When the file becomes corrupt, it cannot be properly loaded and will present an error message if it is needed for an application or function.
The d2d1.dll file is associated with the Direct2D library. We advise updating the graphics drivers on the PC to the latest version, updating DirectX, and making sure the latest Windows system updates are installed.
