I cannot register an ActiveX control I wrote on another machine (error 0x0485, cannot find one or more library file). How do I find out exactly what files are missing?

Use the new program sent out with Visual C 6 called Depends.exe.  It will give you a complete list of dependent DLLs!

Sorry, I am still using VC++ 5.0 and won't be upgrading to version 6 in the near future. Your solution probably works, but I cannot verify it right now.

I'll tell you what, how about I guess which DLL's are missing?

Try olepro32.dll and oleaut32.dll

What language do you use ???

also does
>> (error 0x0485, cannot find one or more library file)
mean that you need some DLL or some other .lib kind of file ???

(I still think that Filemon can help you - you'll see which files your component is trying to use, but can't find ...)

It would be a DLL.

Philip,
    Sorry again.  All the libraries I can think of (including olepro32.dll and oleaut32.dll) are already there. I even build a debugging version of the program regsrv32.exe trying to trace down which file was missing.  The failure occurred in the call to the LoadLibrary( ) function, but I could not find any information on the missing file.

Send me the activeX control and I'll run depends on it, OK?

When you install and register a control, you should also register OLEPRO32.DLL. Use the same procedure for registering this DLL as you did for your .OCX file. Perform this registration step and try registering ur activeX.

If your control uses one of the stock property pages, you should also register MFCx0.DLL. Unlike OLEPRO32.DLL, you should always register this DLL, even if it is already installed.

Thanks for all the help I got, especially the suggestions from sudhirbrat and philip. There are multiple causes for my problem. On some machines it is because some ole and mfc dlls were not registered, as pointed out by sudhirbrat.  On others it is because oracle client software(used by my ActiveX control) was not installed properly.
Thanks again !!!
