Hi,
I have a dll that seems to be having a problem registering on a 64bit machine.
I am using VB.net 08 and built an MSI installation file. All is working great on 32 bit machines.
 Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {DB797690-40E0-11D2-9BD5-0060082AE372} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

any help would be great thanks

Your error is probably caused by the dll taking advantage of depricated x86 commands that weren't ported to the x86 emulator on your x86-64 machine.  This means you either need a new x86-64 dll file or accept that it won't run on x86-64 machines.

Cheers,
Nick
