DWA-182 Installation Error
« on: February 12, 2015, 06:28:24 PM »


I am attempting to access the D-Link Wizard but I keep getting an error "ANPDApi.dll is missing."

As i try to repair the D-Link program by re installing using the installation disc, i get another error seen in the image below:

This make no sense as I have a windows 7 machine, and already have the wizard installed on my computer, and all I'm trying to do is re install or perform maintenance on the existing program.

Has anyone else seen any errors like these?

I was able to properly update the D-Link drivers (Thanks to D-Link support center) but i am experiencing another bizarre problem, my AC1200 adapter seems to run unstably on windows 7, causing random resarts(at random times) every time its plugged in to a USB port.  My computer runs fine when I unplug the adapter.

It seems like either a usb problem or an adapter problem.

Has any one experienced this before?

  • Try fully un-installing the drivers for the adapter. Reboot the PC and hit F8 as the post BIOS screen and before Windows starts. Select Disable Driver Signing Enforcement menu option. Allow the PC to continue to boot into Windows. Install the newer drivers designated for Windows 7x64 from the web site.
