Hello,
I have the following problem. I have a PC with Windows XP pro 32 bit SP3 installed where Visual Basic 2005 was installed. On that Pc i have a small program that was made in VB 2005 where a activex (.dll) file is used in the program to connect to a domotica system.
 
Everything was working like it should be but the windows was getting to slow after a few years so i decided to reformat the PC with the same XP pro SP3.
 
Now when i try to start the programm i have a error 'Cannot Create ActiveX Component' this on the first line in the program where the controller is asked to do something.
 
I remember that i have the same problem also the first time (so a few years ago) and that i have to register it in windows. or something like that.
So i have tried this with the following command regsvr32 eibvblib.dll there is a error --> eibvblib.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file cannot be registered.
 
Now i dont know how i can resolve this. Maybe i am doing it wrong but i am almost 100% sure that i use the same .dll files because i have copied them from the installation CD that came with the controller.
The company where we bought it is not reachable due to the holliday period so i can not ask it there for the moment.
 
Does anyone have a idea how i can register this dll so that the command in VB 2005 wil be valid again.
I have also installed VB 2008 on another XP Pc an there the same error is there.
 
Thanks.
 
Best regards

your question is very poorly tagged and labelled ( i.e. your subject ). Your question is this : I am using VB.NET, but still using an old ocx control that I don't have adequate documentation for. There's no way we can help. The answer is, you need to figure out which file is your dll and register it. VB and Windows are working fine. The issue is your lack of documentation of your process and reliance on an old dll you don't know how to configure.
 
I googled and all I found was your questions on other forums, in Dutch ( I assume that was you ), so I am assuming you're using something pretty damn obscure. What does it do ? Might you be better off to move away from it, or don't you have a choice ? Can you contact the people you got the dll from ? It's always dangerous to rely on something that is unsupported and not have created a document when it was fresh in your mind of how to configure/use it.
