Camtasia is one of those niche software suits which provides users with all tools they need for tutorial and presentation making, video editing and screen recording. Of course, like any other software you can think of, it does have certain issues.

The “Camtasia filters.dll failed to register” or “Camtasia filters.dll is missing” are bothering some users. Due to this error, they are unable to load the program. We’re limited when it comes to possible solutions due to configuration differences, but these 2 common solutions might help.

What to do if Camtasia filters.dll is missing

Solution 1 – Install Redistributables

In order for the installation to identify necessary filters, you’ll need to have Visual C++ Redistributable installed. A bunch of loading errors appears due to a lack of said associated software. With that in mind, we suggest navigating to the official website and downloading Virtual Studio C++ Redistributable which meets requirements.

If you have a 64-bit system architecture, it’s advised to install both x86 and x64 versions of the said software. After you’ve done that, reboot your PC and give Camtasia another try. You can find everything you need, here.

Solution 2 – Reinstall the software

If that’s of no use, the only solution we can recommend is a complete reinstallation of Camtasia. This might take some time, but a possible corruption in the application files can occasionally inflict  “Camtasia filters.dll failed to register” error. This should resolve all problems you have with this video tutorial software.

Here’s how to reinstall Camtasia in a few simple steps:

  1. In the Windows Search bar, type Control and open Control Panel.
  2. Click Uninstall a program with the Category view enabled.
  3. Uninstall Camtasia and reboot your PC.
  4. Navigate the TechSmith official website and download the latest release.
  5. Run the installer, install and configure the application.

That’s a wrap. Don’t forget to send a ticket to TechSmith if you’re still stuck with the error. The support team should help you address it. Also, feel free to tell us whether you’ve succeeded or not in the comments section below.
