Application-defined or object-defined error - I will jump out the window.

Please save me from jumping out the window!

I have a Project Group that has 2 dlls, 1 ocx, and 1 exe.

Ctrl-F5 runs the group just fine. No problems.

When I compile, and install on my own machine (the same as the developing machine) or a testing machine I get two errors:

1. Type Mismatch

followed immediately by:

2. Application-defined or object-defined error Error 599999 (give or take a '9')

So, I compiled the whole group, and just opened up the exe project, and did a Ctlr-F5. Turns out the problem has to do with one of the Dlls (wme.dll) on this line of modMain.bas:

set x = new wme.engine '(x is defined as public in the module)

Question: How do I debug that Dll? In the group and on its own it works just fine

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

There is nothing in the Class_Initialize.

Will try binary compatibility.

I am also compiling from a network drive. Project is located at \\server\user\vbcode\category\name. Could that have something to do with it?

What is the X type of variable?
Type mismatch usually refers to a confusion in variable types (passing an integer when expection a single, etc.)

If using VB.NET - doesn't like VARIANTS.

If there is no class initialize in the dll then it has to be an error in your declaration (if it is correctly compiled &  registered)...
