I am still using Windows 7 and somehow I managed to disable those annoying Windows 10 update alerts, but after a while I noticed that some of my programs are not working and even in compatibility mode. Every time I tried to launch them I was getting application failed to start error – libeay32.dll is missing from your computer, please reinstall the application. As you may have guessed the reinstallation didn’t fix that issue. At first I was blaming Microsoft, I thought they are pushing users to update to windows 10 to get rid of errors, but after investigation more about .dll problems and specifically about libeay32.dll I found that it’s not Microsoft and it can be fixed without any problem.
libeay32.dll is missing error might happen on Windows 7 or 8 and even on Windows 10. This library is present in every Windows Operating System and it is used by many programs and applications as a repository for required functions and instructions that help to run the program as intended. However, due to various reasons libeay32.dll can become damaged, corrupted or removed from your computer. This will cause the appearance of libeay32.dll is missing or not found error once you try to launch the application that will look around for libeay32.dll library. Anyway, it’s not hard to fix libeay32.dll not found error.
