Deleting temporary folders fixed the error in loading the Python DLL in apyinstaller for many users, so we recommend you try this.

Temporary folders may contain corrupted files that the application cannot process, leading to an error.

If this does not solve your problem, we recommend that you try third-party software.

DLLs and Registries are valuable data libraries that Windows uses to function properly.

As a result, damaged or missing DLLs or registry keys can be a major cause of crashes, lockups and error messages, and even prevent you from running Windows software and functionality in general.

Unfortunately, registries and DLLs are piles of data that are difficult for even advanced users to configure properly without advice or even help from Microsoft.

Moreover, restarting the Windows operating system is one of the few really effective solutions to correct these errors, but this solution has too many drawbacks.

Error: The file name is not specified.
