IsDone.dll Error Fix Tutorial Released By PCFixes.com
IsDone.dll errors are caused by a lack of space in your hard drive / RAM. Its errors are most commonly associated with the installation of certain games; displaying an error citing the file as becoming damaged. The fix is to ensure you have space.
Like all DLL files on the Windows platform, IsDone.dll is used by third party applications to perform a number of specific actions that only that file can facilitate.
The file is part of the core Windows subsystem (as opposed to being a third party file introduced by the likes of Visual C++ Redistributable distributions, or some other source). As a result, a number of people have expressed frustration at how to resolve the problems it creates.
As mentioned - the core of the problem is that the game / application you're trying to install has ran out of space. Since the application doesn't know what the issue is, it raises an exception to IsDone.dll - leading the file to show an error. The way you interpret the error determines the next steps to take.
Normally, DLL errors on Windows have the following causes:
- corrupt / missing file
- application using wrong version of file
- system unable to load the file for whatever reason
Importantly, with IsDone.dll - none of the above are the problem. What's actually happening is that your system is basically telling you that there's a deeper issue, and the file is the one to highlight it. In other words, the error has almost NOTHING to do with the file itself.
The newly released tutorial from PCFixes.com attests to this issue. It explains that you've *likely* ran out of space on your system, and have thus either got to remove files from your hard drive OR increase the capacity of your system...
The most effective solution is to the inbuilt "virtual memory" section of Windows.
This creates what's commonly known as a "swap space" (Windows calls it a "page file"), which essentially allows your system to use your hard drive as a sort of RAM. Bumping the amount of semi-persistent space you have inside your system allows you to install the various games/applications which may require a large amount of resource - hence resolving the error the majority of the time.
Other solutions include ensuring the software is not running incorrectly, and that your system has all the required updates etc.
