Hi doramail05,
putting components to System32 is not enough. You have to register them with regsvr32 command. And I don't think RichTechSTK1.SIMToolkit comes from MSCOMM32.OCX. Do you have something like RichTechSTK.dll?
doramail05Author Commented:
when trying to run command

C:\>REGSVR32 C:\RichTechSTK1.dll

it having the error :
The Module "C:\RichTechSTK1.dll' was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.

Makesure that "C:\RichTechSTK1.dll' is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again

So, this is not a COm library.  What object is invoked at like 6? Can you show your code?

here they are

Imports RichTechSTK1
Imports SIMToolKit

Module Module1

    Private oSMSMOMT As New RichTechSTK1.SIMToolKit
    Private simtoolkit As New SIMToolKit.SIMToolKit
    Dim aTimer As New System.Timers.Timer

    Sub Main()

        aTimer.AutoReset = True
        aTimer.Interval = 1000 '2 seconds 
        AddHandler aTimer.Elapsed, AddressOf tick
        aTimer.Start()
        'Console.ReadKey()

    End Sub

    Private Sub tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Timers.ElapsedEventArgs)

        Dim sResponse As String = ""

        Dim sModemStatus As String = oSMSMOMT.ModemInit(3, "", sResponse)

        Dim sModemStatus1 As String = simtoolkit.ModemInit(3, "", sResponse)

Open in new window

I'm confused by these lines:
    Private oSMSMOMT As New RichTechSTK1.SIMToolKit
    Private simtoolkit As New SIMToolKit.SIMToolKit

Why there is same class in separate namespaces? Ar you sure you need them? Where does "RichTechSTK1.SIMToolKit" come from?
