What are WBSrv.exe Error Messages?

WBSrv.exe Runtime Errors

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

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

Some of the most common WBSrv.exe errors include:

  • WBSrv.exe - Bad Image.
  • WBSrv.exe Application Error.
  • WBSrv.exe could not be found.
  • WBSrv.exe could not be installed.
  • WBSrv.exe could not be launched. Class not registered.
  • WBSrv.exe could not be started.
  • WBSrv.exe failed to initialize properly.
  • WBSrv.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
  • WBSrv.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
  • WBSrv.exe is not running.
  • Cannot find WBSrv.exe.
  • Error starting program: WBSrv.exe.
  • Faulting Application Path: WBSrv.exe.
  • The file WBSrv.exe is missing or corrupt.

System Error

The program can’t start because WBSrv.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 WBSrv.exe error is key to properly resolving these errors. Although most of these EXE errors affecting WBSrv.exe will happen during startup, occasionally you will encounter a runtime error while using Stardock WindowBlinds. This can occur due to poor programming on behalf of Stardock Corporation, conflicts with other software or 3rd-party plug-ins, or caused by damaged and outdated hardware. Also, these types of WBSrv.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.

Step 3: Perform a Windows Update.

  4. If updates are available for download, click "Install Updates".
  5. After the update is completed, restart your PC.

If Windows Update failed to resolve the WBSrv.exe error message, please proceed to next step. Please note that this final step is recommended for advanced PC users only.

If Those Steps Fail: Download and Replace Your WBSrv.exe File (Caution: Advanced)

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve WBSrv.exe problems.

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

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying WBSrv.exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. Stardock Corporation typically does not release WindowBlinds 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 WBSrv.exe and all other EXE files for WindowBlinds. An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
