VB 6.0 application error : can't find project or Library

Hi,
I have a vb 6.0 application which run just fine on one system (XP based) but when I try to run the same application on some other system (XP or win 2000 for that matter) I receive the following error :

Compile Error :
Can't find project or Library

and highlights one of the lines of code which contains the "TRIM" function of vb 6.0. I tried to uninstall the VB 6.0 software but in vain. I am not able to assess as to whether any dll is missing or is there some other problem. Surprisingly, it works fine on a system of same configuration.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

This occurs on the first string function encountered in the code if any referenced library cannot be found and is therefore labelled as MISSING in the Tools/References list.

As I supposed, a .dll file was missing. Got the error fixed.

Thanks.
