Question where should vba5.dll be?

Where on my pc should vba5.dll be? I have a project that works fine in design time but once an executable file is made the executeable can not find vba5.dll. Searching the internet all the example code I have found is the same but still it all fails when I make an exe file.

Do I need to register the vba5.dll?

thanks for looking

Totally off the top of my head:
You need to place vba5.dll in c:\Windows\System32

You should be able to download it from http://www.pcrepaircentral.com/dll_v_3.html

Yes, you probably should register it. See http://consumerdocs.installshield.co...8199&sliceId=1.

Thanks.
I tried putting a copy of vba5.dll in the c\windows\system32 directory.
my program errored and closed.
I tried registering the vba5.dll and got an error saying the dll registerserver entry point was not found can not register dll.

I go from one problem to another, I'm so close to getting my project to run yet I may as well be a million miles away. Any ideas on what to do?

Sounds like you might need to repair your installation of Windows/Visual Studio?

This was an 11 year old thread?

Fortunately for you smiler44 still frequents now and again, and has only recently been back asking questions.
