I am getting an error message when I try to run a program on a machine other than the one I do the compiling on.

            "the msvbvm50.dll file is linked to missing export oleaut32.dll"

Can anyone tell me what this means or how I can get around it?

Your setup program did not include the file oleaut32.dll.  Change your setup to include this file, or just copy it from another PC.

I tried that, but the file is  in   use by windows, so  it won't let you simply copy  it to  another machine...

Make sure msvbvm50.dll is on the machine your trying to install on.  It should be in the windows system (or system32) directory.  If you still need oleaut32.dll after putting msvbvm50.dll on the new machine, try renaming the file on the developer machine, sometimes windows will let you rename it even if you can't copy it.  Once it's renamed, make a copy of it and then rename it back.

Did you try rebooting in dos mode and copying the file to a floppy?

this is one of those MS ISSUE (Not bug... :->), there are many versions of Oleaut32.dll and other libraries on the street...

First: you can do copies in DOS mode (using shotdown) but... you must do this so many times...

it's better if you include this libraries in you sys32 directory of your Application Setup Wizard...

if you copy those libraries in your 'VB directory \setupkit\kitfil32\sys32' this will include in your installation setup... and setup can verify DLL version when its running... so you dont need loose your drems... ;->
