DWWaveCapture.ax is considered a type of Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. Dynamic Link Library files, like DWWaveCapture.ax, are essentially a "guide book" that stores information and instructions for executable (EXE) files - like MpSigStub.exe - to follow. These files were created so that multiple programs (eg. Pinnacle Video Spin) could share the same DWWaveCapture.ax file, saving valuable memory allocation, therefore making your computer run more efficiently.
Unfortunately, what makes DLL files so convenient and efficient, also makes them extremely vulnerable to problems. If something happens to a shared AX file, either it goes missing or gets corrupted in some way, it can generate a "runtime" error message. Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these errors are triggered when DWWaveCapture.ax is attempted to be loaded either when Pinnacle Video Spin is starting up, or in some cases already running. Some of the most common DWWaveCapture.ax errors include:
- Access Violation at address - DWWaveCapture.ax.
- DWWaveCapture.ax could not be found.
- Cannot find C:\Program Files (x86)\Pinnacle\VideoSpin\Programs\DWWaveCapture.ax.
- Cannot register DWWaveCapture.ax.
- Cannot start Pinnacle Video Spin. A required component is missing: DWWaveCapture.ax. Please install Pinnacle Video Spin again.
- Failed to load DWWaveCapture.ax.
- The application has failed to start because DWWaveCapture.ax was not found.
- The file DWWaveCapture.ax is missing or corrupt.
- This application failed to start because DWWaveCapture.ax was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
Your DWWaveCapture.ax file could be missing due to accidental deletion, uninstalled as a shared file of another program (shared with Pinnacle Video Spin), or deleted by a malware infection. Furthermore, DWWaveCapture.ax file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading Pinnacle Video Spin, system crash while loading DWWaveCapture.ax, bad sectors on your storage media (usually your primary hard drive), or quite commonly, a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.
