ADVAPI32.dll Error when trying to run Igor Pro 9

After installing Igor Pro 9 on a Windows 7 PC the following error pops up when I try to run the program (32 bit or 64 bit): "The procedure entry point EventSetInformation could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll.". I have installed and run Igor Pro 9 on other Windows 7 machines without issue. I checked to make sure that the dll file is on the computer. Has anyone else encounter this problem or know what would cause this?

advapi32.dll is a file that comes with Windows. Igor needs access to that file in order to run properly. If the file isn't there or can't be loaded for some reason, Igor can't run.

I suggest that you try rebooting your machine. If that doesn't work I would reinstall IP9, though I doubt that will help. If that doesn't work you will probably need to follow one of the many articles of questionable usefulness that one can find if you search for something like "ADVAPI32.dll missing". Or perhaps consult with your IT department if you have one.
