Smarthome stopped working a few days ago after many years of trouble free operation. I tried to download the "program" to my computer and got the message:"SHUtils1.dll is missing. Cannot download tree. However, the instructions will be downloaded." What does it mean? Where do I find the missing SHUtils1.dll file and how do I put is back where it belongs?

My program is Smarthome Manager Plus (circa 2004, transferred to a different computer and to Windows 10 around 2017) on a 1132CU controller.

Thanks everybody for any help.

SHUtils1.dll. On my computer. Is in the C:\Program Files\Smarthome\Smarthome Manager folder.

It should have been installed by the programs installer. On the CD in the 1132CU Kit.

It is part of the installer program. So you will not find it as a separate file on the CD.

Did you use the installer or copy all the files from another computer that has Smarthome Manager Plus on it and the SHUtils1.dll was not copied?

BLH. Thanks for answering. I installed the Smarthome program on another computer around 2003. Changed computers around 2017, Windows 10. Transferred all my files using PCMover Ultimate, including the Smarthome stuff; as far as I know, this Mover just copies the files from the old to the new computer. Worked fine until a few days ago.
So, the Mover actually transferred everything between the two computers, including the SHUtils1.dll file, two/three years ago, no problems until now. I tried 2/3 days ago to resend the whole SmartHome "program" to the 1132 module and that is when I got the message "SHUtils1.dll is missing. Cannot download tree. However, the instructions will be downloaded." Thanks for your help.
