A missing adobelinguistic.dll is fairly easy to fix. The adobelinguistic dll file is free to download from many sites on the internet.

The majority of dll files can be found in C:\Windows\System32\ for Windows 98 and XP and C:\WINNT\System\ and C:\WINNT\System32\ for Windows 2000. However, application specific dlls should go in the folder of the specific application it is used for.
