I'm using version of the Chilkat DLL's, with VB6, on a 64 bit 2008 system. I'm copying the dll's into the syswow64 folder, I've been unsuccessful in registering the DLL's. I started with executing "register_win32.bat", then when that didn't work, I ran "unregister_win32.bat", and also ran "unregister_x64.bat", then attempted to reregister the 32 bit dll's. Despite anything I do, I'm unable to successfully register the components. I've opened a command prompt, and pasted the following: regsvr32 "%CD%ChilkatMail2.dll" - and receive the following windows error message:

LoadLibrary("C:windowsSysWOW64ChilkatMht.dll") failed - This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.

any ideas? The system is working fine on XP - but not on 2008. Thoughts? Thanks in advance JB

Any luck getting the libraries registered?

Are you running the batch file as an administrator (right-click batch file > Run As Administrator)?

Yes - thanks for asking. I'm logged in as admin, but have also ran as an administrator independant of the login.

I modified the batch file, removing the /s option, which generated the error above for each of the DLL's. Even stranger is that I tried unregistering the DLLs using the batch file (saw no errors), but when I removed the /s option (in the unregister batch file), I received the same error when unregistering them. I'm wondering if there's an issue with the regsvr32.exe program in syswow64 folder - researching that now.

Perhaps you need the Visual C++ Runtime library installed?
