Hi,

I got some problems registering my dll on my NT machine... I always got when I'm trying :

regsvr32 grassroots.dll

DllRegisterServer in grassroots.dll failed
Return code was: 0x8000ffff

I'm able to register this dll on my win95 machine... but I try a couple of dll on my NT and anyone worked...

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Are you returning a valid HRESULT from your DllRegisterServer function? Have your exported it?

Yes it`s a valid Hresult 0x8000ffff mean unexpected result... it's so userful...

Waht do you mean by exported???

What I can add is, it's a DLL develop in VB and I was not develop on that machine....

I were able to unregister and re-register some Microsoft DLL but anyone of the one that I did in VB, But I wasn't able to register those DLL on this specific machine... but work well everywhere else....

Check the serice pack and the status of your installation of OLE . I have seen this before with a corrupted set of OLE files . If you are NT4 then reinatall SP3 for NT3.51 goto SP5.
