Hi,

I am having problems with a dll on a network drive not working on a windows 7 ultimate machine.  The dll works fine on all are other machines including 3 that have windows 7 professional.

If I try and run the dll with regsvr32.exe I get the following
DllRegisterServer in T:\Folder\DLLName.dll failed
Return code was 0x80004005

I have been trying to work this out for the last couple of days and am about ready to use the computer as a boat anchor.

Thanks for your help

Hi,

The dll was not created by visual foxpro, so this link is not helpful.

Cheers

The WebClass run-time files must be installed to register a WebClass DLL.
This error occurs if you try to register the DLL on a computer that does not have the WebClass run-time files installed and registered.

Solution 1: Install the run time files which the package includes dlls such as (Mswcrun.dll,...)
Solution 2: Make a distribution Package.

Thanks for the info.

I think I need to explain this a little further.

The dll belongs to our accounting package which resides on a network drive, so all the files are there as it runs on all our other computers.

From what I have read I think it is some sort of permission problem, but for the life of me can not work it out.

I have been able to work out the problem which was a Domain problem.  For the DLL to work we have to logon using the Network domain and not the local computer name as the domain.
