When i install my vb program i get an error message saying that a dll is being used. It will not proceed any further. Is there an application to show where the dll is being used and to stop it?

Depends on how you are installing the application. Are you using the VB setup  or a third party installation product (InstallShield, etc?). Either way,if this is happening during the installation, chances are that you are trying to overwrite a system DLL. You probably are not going to want to do that (at least not without saving the old version, just in case).

You can uncheck the DLL in the Package & Depl. wizard. Since it's already on the destination machine there's no need to install it ! (unless your version is newer)

Good luck !

HandleEx for Windows NT from
http://www.sysinternals.com will show you what apps have the DLL loaded.

If it is in use by Windows, see the HOWTO: Move Files That Are Currently in Use Article ID: Q140570 on Microsofts knowledge base (MS site) to find out how to overcome the problem.

You setup prog should really handle this, though.
