I just installed dashlane beta. Everything is OK except the chrome extension whuch keep saying that e program cannot start because a library is missing ==> kwift_NPAPI_exports.dll
I uninstall the dashlane chrome extension and reinstall it but I've got exactly the same issue. I check through your FAQ & forums but didn't find anything.
My PC is Seven Home Premium 64bits (french)
Thanks for your help,
This topic is no longer open for comments or replies.
Could anyone having this issue try to reboot his computer and tell me if that fixed the issue ? This has fixed the issu for at least one user.
If reboot does not work, you can post here for more help, or send me directly an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is happening because you manually uninstalled Dashlane plugin for Chrome. Chrome thinks that you don't want this extension anymore and won't let us install it again.
Here is how to make it work:
- Open explorer
- Go to %appdata%/dashlane/bin/Chrome_Extension
- Open Chrome
- Drag&drop kwift.crx file from explorer to Chrome
- Accept to install extension (see bottom screen)
- Accept again
Please let us know if this solves your issue.

I fixed this problem manually by copying over the dll file from the firefox extension to the chrome extension, restarting chrome, then it worked fine. I'm including a little utility to help make this copy easier. You can use it by saving it as a bat file through a text editor (on notepad, copy paste, then hit save, but instead of .txt, save it as .bat. Make sure it's set to all files instead of .txt, otherwise you'll end up with blah.bat.txt.)
I've also posted a link to the bat all formatted and ready for use below the code.

First of all, thank you all for this feedback, sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you borninlyoko for that fix proposal :)
Obvously, it seems having fix the issue on your computer. Though, even if I try very hard, I really don't understand why :)
I tried in on my personnal computer, (I don't have the issue), but instead of copying, I have moved the DLLs following what you do on your script. It actually broke Dashlane and made the popup "missing DLLs" appears on my computer.
I would be very interested to be able to exchange with you on that script to try to understand on which configuration this solve the issue, and so being able to do a patch to integrate that on the next Dashlane's update.
You can contact me, if you have some spare time, at email@example.com.
Thank you !
