New registered DLL not working on Windows 2003 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have recently modify a dll. I deploy that dll in one of the pc and it works fine.

    Then I try it to deploy on windows 2003 pc. The dll does not take effect at all.

    I was puzzled and so I modify the dll again. The dll was mod to show pop up if it is been called.

    The mod dll work on the PC but it does not work in windows 2003.

    So I assume that the dll has not overwrite the previous dll.

    What can i do?

    Thank in advance

  • not sure how this is a driver related question. how did you build the driver? what do you mean by not take effect? it isn't loaded or the old one is still loaded or ???

  • I have opt to post it add C++ but seem like it posted here.

    For example

    I modified a.dll (version 2) to display a pop up message. 

    then I replace the a.dll (version1) with a.dll (version 2) to windows 2003

    And when the a.dll is called. No pop up message was display.

    I am not sure whether a.dll is loaded or the old one is still loaded.

    is there anyway I can check?

  • Attach a debugger to the process and see what happens

  • Sorry, I am kind of newbie. 

    the DLL was registered on window 2003 server. I am not suppose to install any SDK or WDK on that server. 

    Is there way I can check the dll?

  • You can install windbg from the win7 wdk (install it on some other machine) and then you can xcopy it to the server and debug. It doesn't change the state of the machine, you can just delete the directory when done
