Hello

I use a dll, called '4dxdll.dll'. There was an old and a new version.
Have removed all, except newest from windows\system.
Trying to un/registre the dll with svgsr32 gives this prompt;

'Dll was loaded, but the DllRegistreServer entry point not found.
DllRegistreServer may not be exported, or a corrupt version ad 4dxdll.dll may be in memory. Consider using Pview(?) to detect and remove it.'

What can I do???

If you deleted the dll, you can no longer register/unregister it with regsvr32.  It has to be present on the system for that to work.  If you want to unregister it, simply copy it back in to your windows\system folder, then run regsvr32 on it.  Make sure you use the complete path to the dll to make sure regsvr32 can find it.

If it is still in your windows\system folder, and you get this message, than either the dll is corrupt, or it is not set up to be registered/unregistered with regsvr32.  In this case, the only way to wipe your machine completly clean of it would be to go into the registry and manually remove all entries pointing to it.  To do this, run regedit, and go to Edit | Find and type in the name of the dll.  When you find an occurance of it, and are ready to move to the next one, click Edit | Find Next and it will move you to the next occurance.  However, I would STRONGLY suggest not doing this unless you are very familiar with how the registry works.  If you do decide to take this route, please be sure and back up the registry before making any changes.
