Error: 6000 RDE DLL not found or incorrect version

Hi experts,

I just started experiencing a problem with a program that I use for marine navigation called Capn Voyager 5.3.2  It's running on a Win XP home machine.  When I load the program I receive the following error message:

Error: 6000  
RDE DLL not found or incorrect version

Unfortunately the program is rather old (1999) and I don't recall where I placed the original installation disks.  Is there any way to fix the problem w/o reinstalling the program?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Mike

You can try to get a hold of the Software developers customer service and ask if they can provide a link to either the dll file or the 5.3.2 version - If you can prove ownership you may get luckey

The only reference I have found was from 2003 Rudy Development Environment  - Open Source file
Not sure if that's the one

Search your registry for rde.dll   (start run regedit - then Click at top of list and go Ctrl-F  put in the rde.dll and search - use F-3 to go to the next one - YOu're looking for what path it may have been in. If nothing else - Put it in the Windows\system32 path

 rde-dll-1-8.zip

Can you find a copy of the RDE.DLL on your PC  (look in hidden and system as well

IF you can then it may have just somehow unregistered itself

If it's there - note the path - From the run command try regsvr32 <path>\rde;dll  and see if that works

It's not likeliy that the actual dll is corrupted - just the fact that Windows or the actual program doesn't know what to do with it

Hi DTH,

I searched and searched the HD... I made sure all files were being shown in windows (hidden, system, protected, etc.) but RDE.DLL is nowhere to be found!  Can I download a replacement RDE.DLL from somewhere or does it not work like that (sorry for my ignorance).

Thanks for your help.
