    Hello Feizal,

    Msmdvbanet.dll is a type of DLL file associated with Microsoft SQL Server.
    DLL ("dynamic link library") files such as msmdvbanet.dll are small programs, similar to EXE ("executable") files, which allow multiple software programs to share the same functionality (eg. printing).

    Re-register msmdvbanet.dll from an elevated command prompt (Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8):

    1. Click the Start button.
    2. Type "command" in the search box... DO NOT hit ENTER yet!
    3. While holding CTRL-Shift on your keyboard, hit ENTER.
    4. You will be prompted with a permission dialog box.
    5. Click Yes.
    6. Type the following command: regsvr32 /u msmdvbanet.dll.
    7. Hit ENTER. This will UN-REGISTER your file.
    8. Type the following command: regsvr32 /i msmdvbanet.dll.
    9. Hit ENTER. This will RE-REGISTER your file.
    10. Close the command prompt window.
    11. Re-start the program associated with msmdvbanet.dll error.

    Hope this will help you.

    Hai Feizal,
    The file with the name Msmdvbanet.dll is one of the dll file which is related to the Sql Server and Windows OS.
    It is dependent on the Windows Operating system so you should have it based on the compatibility of the Operating System.
    If you are using the Windows 7 as the Operating System for the your application, you must have the Msmdvbanet.dll with the version 10.50.1600.1
    This file actually gets in the active mode with the Windows Start-up and Sql Server Start-up in the Windows Machine.
    If you gets the error for the file not found or got corrupted, you need to install it and most impotent is to register this dll with the Operating System by using the regsvr32 command.
    in the command prompt, you can reach to the system32 folder and then type this command along with the dll as below:
    regsvr32 Msmdvbanet.dll and press enter
    You should get the message of registered successfully.
    Else, you need uninstall and then install it again and re-register.
    Hope it will be helpful to you.
