<my dll>.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. RRS feed

  • User-1721152084 posted

    Hi,

    I've written a new page on a corporate website using a third party ASP.NET control for Google Mapping.  I published it to our test server with no issues with regard to this control.

    However, when the company handling our website try to load my page, they get the above error.

    Other forums suggest that the .dll is 'not valid'  I don't have a licence for the control yet but I don't think this is the issue.  Can someone help?

     

    thanks

    Paul

    Ok this is not a IIS Problem then but a more general registering a dll problem.

    ... and since this is a third party dll, the best place for help would be with the developer of the dll.

    Is "my dll.dll" your own dll that you wrote or part of the third party control?

    Is the dll registered on the server (use regsvr32)?

    What are the differences between your test servert and the live eviornment?

    Rovastar,

    Yes, the dll is a third party control. 

    Our web hosting co. have tried to register the dll with regvsr32 and that's where the error is generated ("C:\Windows\GMaps.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found.").<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    This file can not be registered

    I don't know what the differences are between our test server and production that relates to my problem yet.
