Runtime Error 3447 VBAJET32.DLL

Installing an app on a Win 98 workstation and then starting it results in "Error 3447 - VBAJET32.dll failed to initialize when called.  Try reinstalling..."

I've tried reinstalling, I've tried copying over the file, I've tried regsvr32 (which gives me the message "VBAJET32.DLL was loaded, but the DLLRegistryENtrypoint was not found.  DLLRegistryServer may not be exported, or a corrupt version of VBAJet32.DLL may be in memory.  COnsider using PView to detect and remove it.

Any advice on this one?  The app works fine if installed on a machine that has had VB6 installed on it.  I haven't found "PView" yet, and am unfamiliar with what it is.

I used the Visual Studio Deployment Wizard for the installation program.

All suggestions gratefully accepted!

Hi gglover
I had a similar problem. I have a tool that shows u all files and dlls used by an application . I bet it works fine on your pc but not on any target pc .
I bet there is a dll that your app is trying to use but is not on the target pc thats why u are getting the error
Use filemon to found out what files it is looking for.
at this internet site
www.sysinternals.com

install filemon(on your pc) and on the target pc .
Save to text file the process filemon displays when u run the app successfully on your pc . Then so the same on the target pc and compare the 2 text files .
I bet it will show u which dll or dlls your target app is trying to use and then u can add them into your setup procedure on your pc

try it
if u battle to get filemon mail me at clazar@softnet.co.za and i will mail it to you
good luck
