How To Solve Logilda.Dll Error?
Users have reported that they usually get this error after upgrading their Windows 10 version or installing a Feature upgrade. The logilda.dll error occurs due to incompatible Logitech software i.e., the Logitech Download Assistant. This software is installed to manage the Logitech software that comes alongside the Logitech Mice.
Solution 1: Reinstall Logitech Drivers
