Have loaded in a prog which makes wordsearches. It says it cannot open because of not being able to find vb40032.dll. I cannot find this either via search nor does it appear to be on my XPhome installation disc. Any ideas where I can get the file? I tried copying it from my laptop it's in system32 but it wouldn't accept it. (laptop has xp professional)

Thanks
Dave

Part of visual basic 4 which you can get here, although it is at version 6 now

http://support.micro....com/?id=196286


File Name Size
-------------------------------
Vb40016.dll 913KB
Vb40032.dll 705KB


Copy these files into the Windows\System directory on the computer where the Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0 applications will be run.

If the proper run-time engine is not installed on a system, the following errors occur when you try to run a Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0 application:

Cannot find VB40016.DLL
-or-
Cannot find VB40032.DLL

After clicking the OK button, the follow error displays:

Cannot find file C:\Project1.exe (or one of its components). Check
to ensure the path and filename are correct and that all required
libraries are available.

Unzipped files to win\ system Now displays the start screen for the programme with message - can't load(or register) custom control COMCTL32.OCX. Should I perhaps have unzipped vb to system32?

That link supplies this :
• Download the ActiveX Control Update Utility from the following Web site:
http://msdn.microsof.../axupgrade.aspx

but when I go there it says location not found!

It does you can do the change manually perhaps I should try that? - haven't attempted anything like that before though!

This is for visual basic 6

This is for the service pack

Have downloaded all those to system 32 as first one made no change after re-boot, but still getting the same message : Run-time error 367
can't load(or register) custom control COMCTL32.OCX

Should I give in?!! Prog used to work before I re-installed xphome though!

You just need to download them and let them install themselves, choose run

Thought that's what I did - download to disk then open which installs. Have I missed something?

I understood you had specifically downloaded them to system 32

This is the next move

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does

System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

The System File Check is only concerned with replacing missing or corrupt system files, and does not affect installed software or data

If you do not have an XP CD then you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD


If no change

You can use this guide to repair XP

Possibly, you will need to boot the PC and keep tapping the delete key until the PC enters set up. Change the boot order to CD ROM Drive then hard drive, press F10 then press enter, load the XP CD then type Y then press enter, as it reboots, look for press any key to load from CD, press enter

You will need the computer’s product key to complete this

XP Repair Install

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update
