LoadLibrary("MyCom.dll") failed - The specified module could not be found.

I made a Com dll.
I build it on my own computer with visual studio .net under window XP.

On my computer, i can put it under windows\system32 and regsvr32 MyCom.dll.
But when i put this dll on other computer and ty to run regsvr32 , i got error
LoadLibrary("MyCom.dll") failed - The specified module could not be found.

What could be the problem or what can i do???

Get the dependency walker from www.dependencywalker.com to see which DLLs are missing on the "other" machine.

BTW, first of all, make sure that you built a release version instead of a debug version.

The dependency walker should tell you what's missing.  It is likely that it is some runtime files needed by VC7-built executables.  If so, here are a few links to information about redistributing VC7-built executables.  The second link describes how to use dependency walker to also see what libraries are loaded dynamically (if any), as well as using DUMPBIN to get dependencies.

Well, that does not really address your problem. What does the dependency walker say on the target machine?

The ...71.dll's are the C and MFC runtime files that go with VC7.  See the first link in the previous list.
