Using VB^'s standard installation tool, I get a message that STKIT432.DLL is missing. Is this important and where do I find this file.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

STKIT432.DLL is a crucial part of the setup kit for 32-bit programs in VB4.  It should have been installed on your PC (in c:\windows\system) when you installed VB.   You need to distribute it as part of the setup files for your application.  

I had a problem a couple of years ago where uninstalling a VB4 program deleted STKIT432.DLL from my system, even though VB itself was still installed.  I had to get a copy of it from another machine.  After that, I made sure I kept a backup copy in another folder (other than c:\windows\system) just in case.

If you can't find a copy, I can put one on my web site for you to download.

thanks that would be useful.

Incidentally, I don't get a way of paying you.
I know there's some way of doing it, but I'll just put this here for you to accept.  Glad I could help.
