Visual Basic 2005/2008

Didier Cauberghe asked:

Open original thread
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.


Best regards
