I am having trouble installing my VB50 application on an NT server. I have created a setup.exe file that I run on the server but it seems like it locks up and does nothing. I can run the setup from my client and everything works fine. Is there something I am missing in this setup file? Please help!

Chances are that you're not running anything. It could be a condition unique to your machine. Try installing it on another NT server if you can, and get back to me w/the results. What ver. of NTServer are you installing it onto?

Did you use the included Setup Wizard to create your setup? Also, do you have any of the Visual Basic service packs installed, and if so, which ones?

Thanks for your reply. Here is the exact message I get when I start the application.
"System Error &H8007007E(-2147024770). The specified module could not be found."

NT Server is very complex. It has alot of security & network features. Not all the applications can be installd on NT Server. You need to develop a specail version of your app to WinNT Server
