Putting a .dll file from my Win-XP-Home machine onto my Win-7 Home Premium machine


J

Just Judy

I'm suffering learning pangs as I try to learn Win-7 after many
years of Win-95, Win-98, and then Win-XP. Contrary to my expectations,
I am finding I like Win-7, and, as I learn more, I suspect I'll be even
more pleased.

BUT, for the moment, I have a 32-bit program on my Win-XP
machine that I desperately want on my Win-7 box. I have the install
file and have copied it here on Win-7. However when I try to run the
program, I get this exact error message:

----------------
"ago32.exe - System Error
"The prgram can't start because VB40032.DLL is missing from your
computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."
-----------------

Note: I have the missing .dll file on my old XP box at
C:WINDOWS\System32. Can I just copy that .dll via floppy disk (I have
no other method available) to the new Win-7 box?

AND, if so, EXACTLY where do I put this .dll.

I hope I've given all the info you might need to answer my
question. Thanks so much for helping all of us here. Your time and
expertise is very much appreciated.

Yes, that may very well work.

In the same place where it is on your XP system, in
C:\Windows\System32.

The DLL is not registered with the O/S, and the O/S cannot find it.

You can put the DLL file anywhere you like, but if the location of the
DLL is not registered with the O/S, then the O/S will not be able to
find it, assuming that this is a COM based DLL and not a .NET DLL, which
must be registered with the O/S.

A .NET DLL does not need to be registered, but the DLL must be placed in
the same location that the .NET programming needing the DLL is located
so that .NET can find it as .NET is looking for the DLL and not the O/S.
I hope I've given all the info you might need to answer my

One other thing, you must be at the Command Prompt, you must be at the
directory where the DLL is located before running Regsvr32 to make it
easy for you. You can run Regsrv32 from any location. If you are in one
location and the DLL is in another location, then you can give the
full-path name to the DLL.

Regsvr32 C:\fullpath\judy.dll
