Exception Error - Please Help

Hi there, I've written a phonebook database program - and it has worked fine up until I made a few changes (like putting in a searching routine) and nothing out of the ordinary - but now on two users machines I get the following error:

Exception EOleSysError in module PPD.EXE at 0006EEF9.
Class not Registered.

I've got exception handlers in to handle the database and file routine errors that may crop up but I have NO idea what could be causing this error and only on some machines.

Desperately seeking help. The application can be downloaded from http://cyberclassifieds.co.za/software/

The application (newer version) that seems to crash on some machines is http://cyberclassifieds.co.za/software/ppdv11.zip

Thanks for anyone's help.

Hi,

Are you sure that you don't use some OCX or other components that need to be registered in this version? I supose that the error pops-up when you want to start the program? Than I think it has something to do with a registering.

PS. I downloaded your file ppdv11.zip but it doesn't work because I don't have the appropriate datafiles for it. Though, nice intro.

Thanks - I found a OLECtrl Unit that had mysteriously placed itself in one of my units - have now taken it out and recompiled - if you could please check it for me and let me know if it works I'd be most appreciative.

Regards,
Demitri

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Hi demitri,

Demitri,

I believe the problem of that error is solved? It was some component that needed to be registered. So please remove this question from the awaiting list. You can assess this answer by the comment I gave you above. Or you can delete the question, I don't care (I don't do this for points, just want to help).
But please remove the question.

I still want to beta test your program. I've already sended you an e-mail, hope to have a respons soon.

Have fun,
c.u. ZifNab;
