GETTING MSMAPI ERROR

Hello,

I'm getting a weird error when trying to launcha  .vpb file, it's giving me this error:

Component 'MSMAPI32.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered:  a file is missing or invalid.

I tried to unregister the MSMAPI32.OCX file but it's telling me this when i try:

"LoadLibrary("msmapi32.ocx") failed - The specific module could not be found.

   This is probably a stupid question, but am I getting this because I do not have Visual Basic 6.0 Working Model installed on my system?  Even if I didn't have VB installed I should still be able to unregister and register this Active X Control, shouldn't I ???

Thanks,

Vic

P.S.  Also, does anyone know where I can get a good simple tool that I can install that will automatically Unregister and Re-register files?

Have a look at this - It would appear so - that active x control doesn't come with the learning edition, so it can't be registered because it doesn't look like it's there.

You can try to download it from here
http://www.techgear007.net/?page=msninfofiles (see bottom right of screen)

Then you can try to register it manually by looking at this - also shows you how to unregister

Hope this helps but post back if any probs

Just to add - there's no point trying to unregister it as again, it's not there- hence the error message.  You could always try run a search on your system just to make sure - start - search and enter-    MSMAPI32.OCX  - make sure you check advanced - enable search hidden folders and system folders - the search I suspect should come up empty

Glad to hear it - the 1st link was just to illustrate my point about the difference between learning and pro versions so you didn't need to just take my word for it, 3rd link to illustrate the use of regsvr32.exe - Happy vb-ing!
