Hello,

Our server was rebuilt about three weeks ago.  It's a Windows 2000 server running IIS 5.0.  I have a programmer who can't access his dll. I have done the following to try and correct the problem with no resolve.

I  have copied the dll to the hard drive in a designated area, per the programmer.  I have also added the dll to Component Services using the Wizard to add a component. Under the Application in the components folder the dll that was added is spinning.  What does this mean?

The programmer cannot use his dll using Asp 3.0 or Interdev.  

Are there any suggestions as to what I can do to fix this?  Thanks in advance!!

By cannot use his email you mean LoadLibrary doesn't work?

A COM object won't load?  Something else?

Perhaps it needs to be registered, e.g.:

regsvr32 thingy.dll

Perhaps it isn't in a directory found in the paths that are searched when you try to load a library name.

What's the error your programmers getting?

Did you export the Component from the server before it was rebuilt and install that on the new server or did you just recreate the component after the server was rebulit?

Hello,

I know that we didn't export the component from the server before it was rebuilt.  He gave me a floppy with the dll on it and we copied it back to the server off of the floppy.  He got the dll from another programmer.

He isn't getting any errors.  It just hangs up when he views the asp page in the browser.  How can you tell if it is registered?  Where would you register the dll?

I found out that the dll is registered.  Any ideas as to why the icon inside of component services is spinning for the dll that we are having trouble with?

Hello all,

I am sorry to report that it was an error on my programmer's end. He gave me a bad copy of the dll. Once we installed the good dll his app worked fine.  Thank you all for your ideas and effort!!

Your welcome.  By the when you see the icon spinning inside of component services it means that the component is being accessed.
