Error with GrooveUtil.dll when starting VUGen

Jump to solution
HI,

I installed LR8.1 in my machine and tried to start VUGen for recording (HTTP /HTML). But after starting the recorder, it only shows an error message saying "Failed to load GrooveUtil.dll". After clicking OK on the message, nothing happens. The LR recorder toolbar has opened but no sign of any IE window opening.

Thanks for any help,
Sayantani

Check, if this works for you!

Disable Groove GFS Browser Helper components.

Open IE, Goto Tools-->InternetOptions-->Programs--->Manage Add-ons-->select Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer and select Groove GFS browser Helper and Disable it.

try recording now and check if it works!

Also,

check if this dll exists or corrupted:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\GrooveUtil.dll
