Google Drive Error Loading Python DLL (Error Code 5)

Google Drive I had this problem again after updating my system, as I open my Google Drive program this error was displayed “Error loading Python DLL … (Error Code 5).


As suggested by others; it has something to do with the compatibility issue with the system. So to fix it we have to enable the compatibility mode for Google Drive to work on the recent system.

Follow the steps below to enable compatibility mode, the images are self explanatory and easy to understand, feel free to use these images as a guide.

On your Google Drive icon, right click then select Properties.


Under Compatibility tab, enable the following options as shown below then click Apply or OK to save the changes.
