We receive a substantial number of questions regarding what to install on a client machine to be able to run an application that uses the DYMO SDK. Should it be DYMO Label software,  DYMO Label SDK, or both?

The answer is — only DYMO Label software has to be installed on a client machine to enable/support DYMO SDK functionality. The DYMO Label software installer includes all necessary binaries needed to run an SDK application. It installs printer drivers, installs libraries and services, and registers the COM components. The latest production version of DYMO Label software installer can always be found on Beta versions with extended SDK functionality are available on this blog.

By contrast, the DYMO Label SDK should be installed on a developer machine only. In fact, it is not required, because the  DYMO Label SDK installer installs documentation and samples only. If you are familiar with the SDK API you might not need it at all. The latest version of the SDK installer is available on

  1. How to load dymo.label.framework in Powershell. I’ve tried adding assemblies for til install dir that DYMO Label software installs into. No matter which dymo*.dll I load, or even all Dymo.dlls i get the error that powershell cant load the dll’s cause dependencies are missing or not found:

    Exception calling “Load” with “1” argument(s): “Filen eller assemblyen ‘Interop.Dymo, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’

    ERROR: + [void][reflection.assembly]::Load <<<< ("Interop.Dymo, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null")
    ERROR: + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    ERROR: + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException

    I've also tried Loading the ,net web services dll into Powershell befor loading dymo.framework – but the error persists !

    How to mend? What am I missing to load into assemblies?

  3. Hi, is there already a way to only install the required .dll’s without installing the whole Label Software?

    • Dominik, there is no way to install only the required DLLs. DLS must be installed as various other file registrations are required in order for the SDK to work.
