    Issue with DLL component


    Can someone explain what is happening with this situation?

    I have an app that was written in VB6 which uses msxml6.dll to provide XML XML documents. It works fine on System A, but not on System B.

    When I try to run the app on System B in the VB6 IDE I get the following error...

    ...referring to this line of code...

    Private Sub ProcessXMLOutput(flexgrid As MSFlexGrid, passedxdoc As MSXML2.DOMDocument30, passedxnode As MSXML2.IXMLDOMNode)

    After a couple of hours of troubleshooting I'm wonder if it has something to do with the System32 vs SysWOW64.

    On System A (the one that works) the registry shows this:

    On System B (the one that doesn't work) the registry is as follows:

    Can someone explain what's going on with this and a possible fix?

    Thank you...Doug

    What are the OS versions for A and B?
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    The dll would go into syswow64 on a 64bit system and into system32 on a 32 bit system.

    Are you sure that all the required files have been installed and registered on the system that is not working for you?
