    Question Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition Error?

    When I try to run any program I receive the error:
    (I have registered this, it says so when I go to help, register this product)
    "No DLL name specified
    Usage: regsvr32[/u] [/s] [/n] [i/[cmdline]] dllname
    /u- Unregistered server
    /s- Silent; display no message boxes
    /i Call DllInstall passing it an optional [cmdline]; when used with /u calls dll uninstall
    /n- do not call DllRegisterServer; this option must be used with /i

    Can you describe in more detail what you're doing?

    Can you open VC++? Can you create a project (normally a Win32 Console Application for novice programmers)? Can you add a file to the project? Can you add code to the file? Can you build the project? If yes to all that, how do you run the program? Do you use Run, or Execute, or Start Debug? Do you use a console with a command prompt?

    The message you posted is about registering a dll, which is different than registering a product. Whether you need to be registering any dlls depends on what you're trying to do, but most novice programmers shouldn't have to worry about that.

    Is that a yes to all those questions? Not all of them were yes/no.
