"missing" library

Posted on 1998-11-06

When I try to start a program in the VB IDE (=not at runtime), there are some error messages:
Commands like "LCase(String)" or "Err(Number)" are marked, and it is stated that a "library is missing".

The library is VBA, which is referenced to VBA5.dll (everything O.K. with references). VBA5.dll is there.

Because I cannot start or compile programs, I deinstalled VB and installed it again.

Do you have any ideas?

Goto www.sysinternals.com and download filemon or Ntfilemon

Start filemon and reproduce the problem.
Stop filemon and read the trace that it generated.
Look for a dll that could not be opened in any location.
This DLL is most likely your problem. Maybe its looking in the wrong directory or something.
