- Check if the dll is registered

- In Module1 use:
Public Declare Function ...

- In Form1
Option Explicit statement must appear before any other source code statements

The dll is not registered because when I try to register winio.dll with the  line command "regsvr32 winio.dll" gives me the following error:

"The module WinIO.dll was loaded, but not registered because don't find the entrance point DllRegisterServer".

Can it indicate me as registering WinIO.dll?

Try this:

1)
Download new WinIo32.dll (WinIo v3.0)
http://www.internals.com/

2)
You don't need to register it

3)
In Module1 change all
Lib "WinIo.dll"
to
Lib "WinIo32.dll"

4)
Copy into your App.Path
DumpPhys.exe
DumpPort.exe
WinIo32.dll
WinIo32.sys

5)
Please don't use Project1.vbp for your Project name.
Rename it in e.g PTestWinIO

6)
Make PTestWinIO executable and run it.
