Fixing "Error in loading DLL" in SharePoint

Friday, September 26th, 2008

I've been doing a ton of SharePoint javascript development lately, and an error that randomly started appearing (and subsequently prevented my scripts from loading) was "Error in loading DLL" which I was very confused about.

Now seeing as I was only doing JavaScript (frontend) development at the time, it made no sense to me that I was receiving this error (because, of course, JavaScript has nothing to do with a DLL which would generally mean you were changing C# code). After spending about 3 hours and a whole bunch of time debugging JavaScript in VS 2008, it turns out that this error is simply caused by an issue in Excel invoking an internal script engine (which is used for parsing specific elements in SharePoint).

The resolution... repair your Office (or at least your Excel) installation, and your problem will go away. This is very frustrating and I couldn't find anything related to this issue that applied to my situation on the web.

Hopefully that will save you all some time.

SharePoint Tom Out.
