What are FMSIScan.exe Error Messages?

FMSIScan.exe Runtime Errors

Runtime errors are 3DMark Basic Edition errors that occur during "runtime". Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these EXE errors are triggered when FMSIScan.exe is attempted to be loaded either when 3DMark Basic Edition is starting up, or in some cases already running. Runtime errors are the most common form of EXE error you will encounter using 3DMark Basic Edition.

In most cases, FMSIScan.exe runtime errors occurring while the program is running will result in the program terminating abnormally. Most of these FMSIScan.exe error messages mean that 3DMark Basic Edition was either unable to locate this file on startup, or the file is corrupt, resulting in a prematurely-aborted startup process. Generally, 3DMark Basic Edition will be unable to start without resolving these errors.

Some of the most common FMSIScan.exe errors include:

  • FMSIScan.exe - Bad Image.

System Error

The program can’t start because FMSIScan.exe is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

Finding the source of the FMSIScan.exe error is key to properly resolving these errors. Although most of these EXE errors affecting FMSIScan.exe will happen during startup, occasionally you will encounter a runtime error while using Futuremark SystemInfo. This can occur due to poor programming on behalf of Futuremark, conflicts with other software or 3rd-party plug-ins, or caused by damaged and outdated hardware. Also, these types of FMSIScan.exe errors can occur if it has been accidentally moved, deleted, or corrupted by a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

Download FMSIScan.exe Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying FMSIScan.exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. Futuremark Corporation typically does not release 3DMark Basic Edition EXE files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing FMSIScan.exe and all other EXE files for 3DMark Basic Edition. An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
