OWA Password DLL load issue

Hello all,

In trying to configure OWA, one of the steps that's needed is to register the iispwchg.dll file. When I attempt to register this DLL, receive the following error message:

"DllRegisterServer in iispwchg.dll failed. Return code was: 0x8007007e"

Nothing on the Net references this error code with relation to the iispwchg driver. Has anyone else come across this issue or know how to resolve?

Thanks!

Thanks for the info, but this is on our Exchange server (2003) and we aren't running Visual Basic or Visual Studio on the box.

Any other suggestions?

Check that the path to your DLL is correct.
I believe it is regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\iisadmpwd\iispwchg.dll

you might also try to go to the path where your Dll is and type : regsvr32 iispwchg.dll

Tried both suggestions as well... still no dice!

Even tried to copy the DLL from the service pack folder, thinking the file may be corrupt. But that didn't work either.

At my earliest opportunity, I'll try to reboot and let you know.  Thanks!

Was able to reboot our Exchange server last night and attempted to register the file again. Still no luck! Same error message as before.

Any additional advise?

What happens when a user attempts to change their password?

nreichAuthor Commented:
Get the error "Error: Object required" which from all my reading eludes to the DLL not being registered.

"DllRegisterServer in iispwchg.dll failed. Return code was: 0x8007007e" is the exact wording of the error?
I'm at a loss at this point.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help

Yuppers! Me too. Can't find anything out on the net with this same issue. I'm stumped!!
Thanks for trying though.

Anyone else have a suggestion or three?

Microsoft's IIS and Exchange support groups have been unable to fix the issue. They wanted me to open a new case which would be handled by another group. Unfortunately I didn't have time for this and have since put another password change process in place utilizing one of our appliances.
