Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

    I've searched and searched but can't find anything related to just this one dll not registering.

    I'm finalizing my testing of a desktop app and performing installs under Windows XP, SP3, everything up to date (that took hours). I'm running a valid copy of XP under VirtualBox and the Host PC is running Windows 8-64. I'm running the same setup with Windows 7 under VirtualBox and all is ok.

    MS Visual C++ 2010 is in (all the A5*.dll files register ok)
    dotNet 4.0 client and extended are in

    All the other files in RegisterFiles.bat register just fine. XbasicActiveScripting.dll just won't register. What is this dll - what's is used for? Just curious. Has anyone run into just this one dll problem? This is my one and only problem (I think) under XP. I've tried it by hand, with Admin priviledges... no go.

    I'm getting the attached error. LoadLibary("XbasicActiveScripting.dll") failed - Invalid access to memory location

    I would sure appreciate any thoughts.

    Re: XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

    Presumably you have checked that the .dll is with the other Alpha dlls in the folder you are installing from.
    Secondly - even though this was never reported a problem in XP, are you installing Alpha to the Program Files directory?
    Just suggestions


      Re: XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

      Morning Ray,

      Yup... the XbasicActiveScripting.dll is in the folder. I've dropped into a CMD window (both as a normal user and Admin), changed directories to my install folder, and ran regsvr32 against the dll and ran the RegisterFiles.bat file. If the dll isn't there you get a "not found" message.

      I'm installing my app into a folder named c:\asda\digital adjuster 3.0

      All the other dll's regsiter ok... just not this one.


        Re: XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

        Should I even bother worrying about getting this to work under XP? Is anyone using XP any more? I would imagine that any PC using XP will literally by dying out. Any replacement PCs will carry a current OS.

          Yes, XP will die out--but not for some time, at least for many businesses. My main client, with maybe 20 workstations, has mostly XP and and only a few Win7 machines and they actually prefer the XP machines not only for my apps but for all their other business programs. They see no good reason to upgrade the XP's to Win7 until the XP machines literally die or MS stops providing security updates. I'd guess that XP will remain relevant for business use for at least another year or two. Heck, I have both XP and Win7 and I choose to do my development on the XP box (and test on Win7).

          Then too, God forbid, maybe everyone will soon be on Win8.

            Thanks Raymond, good comments.

            I don't want to spend much more time on this error. If I can't get it figured out then I won't bother with WinXP. I'm getting some erractic behaviours from this app under WinXP and I have a feeling it's this dll that won't register... but you just can't tell.

            I liked, and like Win 7, and I'm currently running under Win8 with a shell interface so I don't have to bother with Win8 tiles etc. I do find it a bit faster than Win7 and since I don't have to deal with the Win8 interface, I'm happy.


              Re: XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

              I had this problem and tried everything I could find on the forums.
              In the end I went for a clean install of XP SP3 to get this fixed.
              Sometimes this is the best solution especially on a build which has had loads of apps installed and removed over the years.


                Re: XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

                Thanks for the info John. All my test installs are done under VirtualBox so they're pretty much a clean install. The only software installed is what's being tested.


                  Re: XBasicActiveScripting dll not registering

                  I'm getting this on a Windows 7 computer.

                  I've been testing the setup.exe for my new application; installing and uninstalling.

                  After several faulty installs, I started getting this message.

                  I'm assuming that the xBasicActiveScripting.dll is not required for my clients running with runtime. So, I'm not too worried.

                  Does any one know if I should be?
