I have a project which on successful building provides an abc.dll as an output which is then registered using regsvr32.
I built my Project in the Release configuration. The project builds successfully and then I can successfully register it using regsvr32.
Now I build the same project on VS2008 with the Debug configuration with absolutely no changes to the code. The project builds successfully. However, regsvr32 fails to register and shows a message “Load Library (abc.dll) failed. The specified module could not be found”.
I checked the .wll file with the software called “Dependency Walker”, which provided with a list of dlls that it uses. These are:
I copied all these dlls from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\ce\dll\x86 and other folders on the system, and downloaded msjava.dll and coredll.dll are downloaded from an external website. And pasted all of them into the C:\Windows\system32 folder.
After this, when I try to register the abc.dll, regsvr32 simply fails – no message at all. When I try to unregister the dll with regsvr32 /u abc.dll, it does not give any response. Any clues?
I have not used the /s option so the suppressing of the message is not the issue.
