Installation problem

I don't know if somebody is able to answer to my question because i don't have not a lot of information of the error.
I install my pgm. with .cab files.
I'm not able to install 3 files and i have the same error for them.
Here is it:
An error arrived when the inscription of the file:
c:\windows\system\crystl32.ocx
c:\windows\system\craxdrt.dll
c:\windows\system\expsrv.dll

If i tell Ignored the parts of thepgm. that need the files doesn't work.
P.S. I translate the error, it was in french, i don't know in english what it is.

It's probably complaining about registering the files.
Have you installed Service Pack 3?
You could also try to register these files manually using the REGSVR32 program.

When you start up VB it should say which Service Pack, if any, is installed.
Otherwise you can go into Help->About in VB and if SP# is installed it should display Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0(SP3).

I know this SP does clear up a known problem with the registering of expsrv.dll.  But I'm not sure about the others.

Either way it is a good idea to install this SP.
You can download it from http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/sp/vs6sp3/default.asp

Please note that this SP is for the whole of Visual Studio 6, so it will also update other things like Visual C++ if you have it installed.

I believe the other DLL's are related to Crystal Reports. If you are installing on NT, you may need to be logged in as an Administrator.

I have created several programs using Crystal Reports, those are the files that the program requires.  I have found on several machines brand new, with only Win98b {no other applications loaded on it!} The visual basic program has a problem registering those files.
I choose ignore for all three then restart the computer, this has worked for me 100% of the time. I have done this on over 20 computers.

Do you know what version of Crystal Reports the program is running?

dosylAuthor Commented:
I have the CrystalReports's version 7.0.0.0

With Service Pack 3 the problem with c:\windows\system\expsrv.dll is disappeared.

dosyl ... about your name/company name disappearing - I'm not sure why that would have happened and I can't find a setting for it anywhere in the registry.
I would advise re-installing SP3 to see if it asks for your details again.

What versions of the following files do you have?
c:\windows\system\crystl32.ocx
c:\windows\system\craxdrt.dll

If the problem persists I would advise you to try to create a separate Setup package just with those 2 files in it and see if it works or not.

I've had a similar problem recently (have a look at my asked questions) when trying to run a Setup package.

You could also try running the REGSVR32 program as I explained to you earlier.

You can do this by manually copying the 2 files you're having problems with to the C:\windows\system directory on the machine you want to install on.
Then run the following commands (in a DOS window):
REGSVR32 c:\windows\system\crystl32.ocx
and
REGSVR32 c:\windows\system\craxdrt.dll
This should either tell you the registration was successful or it wil give you a DLL load failure.

Try these options and let us know the results.

Regards,
Grant.

I writed to Segeate for Information.
Here is their ainswer:

Crystl32.ocx is needed if you are using the OCX in your project (i.e. the
Crystal Custom Control)

Craxdrt.dll is needed if you are using the Report Designer Component in
your project.

If you are using neither, they do not need to be registered, or even
distributed for that matter.


Thank's all of you for your Help.

I accept gcs001's answer, because it solves the problem with:
An error arrived when the inscription of the file:
c:\windows\system\expsrv.dll

Thank's.
