    Missing DLL (XP Home)

    I have a client who gets an error message saying he is missing MSSTDFMT.DLL when he attempts to run a VB program I wrote.. I don't understand why his machine indicates that it needs this DLL to run my program, as I have tje same loaded on my XP Home machine and ir runs OK. Furthermore, I have searched my computer for MSSTDFMT.DLL, and it's not present.

    I seem to recall that there is a Run command for re-installing missing DLL's, but darned if I can recall it. Can anyone help me here?

    A sideways solution: I have MSSTDFMT.DLL in WINDOWSSYSTEM32, 2000/03/04, 118,784 bytes (XP Pro SP1). Can you find a machine with it on and give the chap a copy?

    No doubt someone will tell you how to do the "reinstall"!

    To register a DLL, enter:<pre>regsvr32 {dllname}</pre>

    at the Start - Run prompt. You can also optionally add the /s switch which will suppress any status messages; I prefer to see an indication that it succeeded (or failed).

    More information on this DLL is available here, it appears to be part of Visual Studio.

    Thanks to everyone. I was mistaken in saying that I couldn't find the dll on my machine -- it was right there in C:WindowsSystem32 where it ought to be.

    I've informed my client how to reinstall it.
