  2. SysWOW64\Sens.dll

    The system file C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Sens.dll which exists in Windows 7 does not exist in Windows 10.

    Why does the file not exist in SysWOW64 folder in Windows 10 anymore?

    Are there any expected problems in the case of copying the Windows7 SysWOW64\Sens.dll to Windows 10 SysWOW64 folder and using the file?

    What do you mean, specifically, "opens on it's own". Does an app run? Does the explorer window just pop up? and update your system specs..... makes it easier to help. *Smile
