BASS_ChannelSetAttributes function not found

"BASS_ChannelSetAttributes function not found in bass.dll"

It's the annoying error I get when I start up this interesting game.

Common error? I see people getting a lot of errors at the moment.

This is the GOTY version I'm trying to play.

This problem seems to occur when there is a file called bass.dll in the windows or windows\system32 folder. The game confuses it for one of the game files (also called bass.dll) and it causes the game to crash. I fixed the problem on my computer by renaming the file, however this can cause problems with whatever program installed bass.dll in the first place (I do not know what program it is). Apparently some people have had success using compatibility mode, I have not tried it though.

"BASS_ChannelSetAttributes function not found in bass.dll" is what I'm getting when I try to run Insaniquarium Deluxe. There wasn't a forum thread for it, but I thought that maybe this one would be a related issue, since it's also made by PopCap.

So, in simple terms that a plebeian like me can understand, how do I fix this?

EDIT: I've just discovered that my PvZ is doing this too. Until just today or yesterday, I was able to play these games just fine!

I think it's the same problem in Insaniquarium as it is in Plants Vs Zombies. Check in C:\Windows\System32 for a file called bass.dll, and if there is one, rename it (bass.bak for instance). Then try to run both games again.

It may also be in C:\Windows or if you are using 64-Bit, c:\Windows\SysWow64\
