What are LOCALE.GPD Error Messages?


General LOCALE.GPD Runtime Errors

LOCALE.GPD file errors often occur during the startup phase of Microsoft Office Access 2010, but can also occur while the program is running. These types GPD errors are also known as “runtime errors” because they occur while Microsoft Office Access 2010 is running. Here are some of the most common LOCALE.GPD runtime errors:

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\ntprint.inf_amd64_3b85c9ab1479b740\Amd64\LOCALE.GPD

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.


Most GPD errors are due to missing or corrupt files. Your LOCALE.GPD file could be missing due to accidental deletion, uninstalled as a shared file of another program (shared with Microsoft Office Access 2010), or deleted by a malware infection. Furthermore, LOCALE.GPD file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading Microsoft Office Access 2010, system crash while loading or saving LOCALE.GPD, bad sectors on your storage media (usually your primary hard drive), or malware infection. Thus, it’s critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve LOCALE.GPD problems. To avoid data loss, you must be sure that you have backed-up all of your important documents, pictures, software installers, and other personal data before beginning the process. If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.



Download LOCALE.GPD Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying LOCALE.GPD to your appropriate Windows system directory. Microsoft typically does not release Microsoft Office Access 2010 GPD 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 LOCALE.GPD and all other GPD files for Microsoft Office Access 2010. An incorrectly installed GPD file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
