Stephen Lebans MouseHook.dll, Can't find entry point StartMouseWheel

P: n/a
Hello all!
I've been using Stephen Lebans' MouseWheel stuff for a number of years
now, without problems. I've used on different combinations of Access
and Windows, and have had great results with it. (Even better,
considering what I paid for it.)

Just hit a situation where it didn't work, though, and I was wondering
if anyone else has hit this yet:

*A dumb terminal, running Windows 2003.
*Access 2003.

The dll is in the same directory as the program. Tracing through it, I
can see that the dll gets correctly loaded, since there's a valid
handle returned. However, when the form loads, the call to
StopMouseWheel returns False. And, when the form closes once again and
modMouseHook's MouseWheelON is called, the call to StartMouseWheel
returns the following error:

Run-time error 453. "Can't find entry point StartMouseWheel in
MouseHook.dll."

Anyone have any ideas? I suspect Windows 2003 or the fact that this is
a dumb terminal, since I've already successfully used MouseHook.dll on
Windows XP/Access 2003.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Best,
Rémi.

Try placing the DLL in the WIndows/System folder instead.

If all else fails hard code the path in the DLL Function declaration to
the WIndows/System folder.

Just a follow-up note, that the answer might be archived for
prosperity...

Discussed the issue with the organization's network and support people.
It appears they have software running on their server that doesn't
allow users to run any code that isn't owned by Administrator. Since
the dll was placed in the user's directory, by the user himself, the
DLL was not allowed to execute.

Thanks again for taking the time to offer suggestions, Stephen. I
realize you're under no obligation, and I do appreciate it.

Best,
R/mi.
