    COM exe not running on a particular machine

    Hi All,

    I have a COM exe which runs fine on all machines that I have used except one. On a particular machine, the COM exe does not start even after trying to execute it manually (do a double click on the file from explorer).

    There are no error messages as well. Any inputs on what could be happening ?

    Thanks.

    Was this COM installed/registered on "a particular machine" where it doesn't work?

    I did try to register it from cmd prompt. But there was no error message nor a successful message.

    It was installed on that particular machine and registration was part of installation.

    Try to look at the Event Viewer. Perhaps, there is some info about your COM exe problems...

    I had seen event viewer for information and didn't find any.

    how should I be going about this issue ? Are there any specific things that I should be looking into ?

    You might want to provide more info about your "COM exe" (what is it and what is it supposed to do?) and about this specific machine on which you have the problem .

    I created this COM exe to carry out a few processes like reading/writing to files, logging and some other utility stuff. The machine in question is a 32-bit machine running windows server 2003.

    Please, define "to carry out a few processes like reading/writing to files, logging and some other utility stuff..."
    What is the difference between this "windows server 2003" and all the other machines on which your COM exe runs successfully?
