Register a dll

P: n/a
Hi all,

I am working on a database in Access XP, but when I install the same
database on a 2000 OS I get an error that says I need to register
msador15.dll. I can find the dll, but even though I double click on it
(run it?) it still is not registered. Please help.

Thanks in advance,
Jenni

use the run command on the start menu, and run
regsvr32.exe <pathto>msador15.dll
example: regsvr32.exe C:\Windows\System32\msador15.dll

A useful tip:
Right click on the dll, choose "open with". You get a warning, choose "Open
With", choose "select a file from a list", then browse and find regsvr32.exe
(usually in Windows\System32). The next time you need to register a dll, you
should be able to right-click and have regsvr32 as an option to run it with.

msador.dll is part of the mdac installation, which was NOT designed to be
installed piecemeal ... you will almost certainly run into troubles if you
register the .dll without upgrading the MDAC on the target machine.

TR: cool tip on the regsvr32 ... never thought about that!!

Hi Scott,
I didn't recognize the dll as part of MDAC, thanks for catching that.
If you do alot of dll/ocx registration/unregistration (which I do as part of
support in our company), another tip is to use the OCX/DLL Regsvr Context
menu utility from the website below.
Its a simple registry tweak that adds a right click menu for dll and ocx
files to register/unregister.

Thanks, The MDAC stuff sounds much more complicated than I had
anticipated. There goes the learning curve!!

You have to register it via "regsvr32" Type "regsvr32 "full_path_to_dll""
(for example: regsvr32 "c:\win\sytem32\proceduresort.dll")
in the run window entry and click on OK. If everything is well, You get the
message that the lib has been registered.

Yours friendly,
