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...

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.
