Error message: BCHelper.exe - system error


I'm getting the following error message at Windows startup:

  • BCHelper.exe - system error

The program can't start because sqlite3.dll is missing your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.


You have to uninstall/reinstall the application.

  • As a first step. Search on your HDD to see that if the DLL is really missing.
  • Click on Start > Run > Type "cmd"
  • Enter this command and validate (assuming that the application is installed on drive C)
    • attrib c:\sqlite3.dll /S
  • If found, Windows displays the path to the file, you simply have to the instructions given here.
  • In the other case, download the missing file: sqlite3.dll

Thanks to Pierrot6150 for this tip.
