I am trying to install a program on a new PC and during the install process, I receive the error that it could not register the EXPSRV.DLL.  I then try to register it myself and receive the following error:

expsrv.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterSever entry point was not found.

Without this I am receiving the error message when trying to receive a .dbf file Cannot find installable ISAM.

Can anyone tell me what I need to intall to allow the Dll's to be registered?

The main reason that expsrv.dll could not be registered is that it does not need registering.

The error regarding the installable ISAM must be related to some other DLL

Install SP3 of VB on your development PC and rebuild your CAB file. This will correct this error and a couple more!

Just a note of caution on SP3 of VB - if you're involved in any form of web development - back up MSWCRUN.DLL before installing and then re-instate this version - SP3 ships with a version that is buggy and Microsoft recommend rollingback to the original version.

We have has a similar problem month ago, I know there is a Q article about this but can't find the number.

What I remember is

1.) The DLL was not written for the OS you use
2.) There is no need to register this DLL

In your case I guess that option 1.) is your problem. Check with the manufacturer of the software if i is written for your OS. (Note: Not all programms running Win9.x are fully compatible with NT or 2K).
