Unable to remove my own duplicate DLL items from REFERENCES list (VB6 SP5)
Posted on 2003-11-08
I am having a difficult time removing my own ACTIVEX DLL REFERENCES within my VB 6.0 SP5 IDE.
These DLLs represent interfaces which I have changed during my development process AND have moved into different
folders where they were then registered and unregistered using COM Explorer 2.0. COM Explorer 2.0 does not list the files (at least I can't seem to find them). Symantec System Works doesnt complain about them however Visual Basic STILL lists them even though they dont exist. No matter how hard I try to remove them, they simply won't go away. I have even uninstalled visual basic, reinstalled it and those pesky references are still there. In some cases the items are duplicated several times as well which is a headache since I dont know which one to check off initially as the names are identical. The bogus references always give ERROR LOADING DLL so I keep trying until I find one that works. Anyone know what I need to do to fix this. I may have deleted the original folder where these DLLS were first compiled and recompiled them in a totally new folder. I have had these references for quite a long time and can't get rid of them.
