Missing mia.lib?

I'm trying to install the new native access application to update from the older one. When I go to install or even uninstall native access my windows 10 PC tells me it isn't able to because it's missing 'mia.lib'? Does anyone else have this issue and we're able to resolve it? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I finally found the solution for me!

    I have avast antivirus, I just suspended it during 10 minutes, and retried installation after having removed every trace of NA on my computer and:IT WORKS!

    Hope it will do the job on your computer as well.

    Well. 6 hours of research and I couldn't find a working solution anywhere.

    I finally tried a desperate method, which was the solution to the mia.lib problem.


    I Have Win10 and I installed Native Access 1 Legacy Installer for windows 7/8

    Native Access version 1.14.1

    you can find it here:

    The installation brought back all the missing files,

    after this, the Native access 2 installation was successful.

    Hi Zack, I have the same issue and I'm stuck.. at the beginning I tried to update NA (Native Access) to second version and it told me "missing mia.lib". So I tried to uninstall NA 1 that I have on my PC but tells me the same message. Then I tried to run the famous "NI Uninstall RegTool_64bit" and remove NA from it, then I deleted manually the "programme/NI/NA" folder to reinstall NA2 from scratch but it still pops "missing mia.lib".

    Then I updated every soft and every driver on my computer and restarted it, but it sill does not work.

    Finally I tried to uninstall it from a third party soft which is Ccleaner but it does not even respond when I click "uninstall" button in it on NA


    Please if someone can help I would appreciate too, cause for now I can't work.

    You can find the regtool here: NI Uninstall RegTool_64bit.zip

    Deactivate your antivirus for installation, as @cooc said.

    And @cooc I would recommend to get rid of CCleaner, it can create a lot of damage: Notes on Using Registry or Property List Cleaning Utilities

    Thx Jussi

    Re-install old NA version (1.14.1), then the new one (2.x) makes it work
