    runtime error '372'

    Failed to load 'webbrowser' from shdocvw.dll. Your version of shdocvw.dll may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application

    How do i get a new copy of this dll file or fix it?

    On a more conservative, you can try this and see if it will resolve the problem. It calls for a Registry Edit so back up your Registry before you begin:

    To change the Shdocvw.dll error messages

    1. Start> Run> regedit> OK.

    2. In the Registry Editor window, click the plus signs in the left pane to go to the following location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \InternetExplorer

    3. Click the AboutURLs registry key.

    4. In the right pane of the Registry Editor, double-click the error message you want to change in the Name column, and then, under Value data, type the complete URL. For example, type:

    http://my server/my folder/my error message.htm

    5. Close the Registry Editor> then restart Internet Explorer.

    Tip If you make a mistake that results in your computer not starting properly, you can restore the registry. For instructions, see the Registry Editor Help topic, "Restoring the Registry."
