    i got an error that msvcr71.dll was missing, so i installed the VC++ 2005 redistributable package (which includes the dll) and it didnt work, so i downloaded and placed the DLL myself (in [c/windows] & [c/windows/system] & [c/windows/system32]) it only NEEDS to be in the system32 folder, but i put in the other three just incase... and im still getting the error......

    can anybody help me?

    Thanks,
    -Dante

    once copied you'll have to register it I think.


    START ORB, then type: regsvr32 <path & filename of dll>

    that will register the file. Not sure if it will cure the problem but it wont hurt!

    I believe you need to 2008 runtime, although I'm not ever sure that's a part of it.

    Do a search on your computer for that filename, goose the latest version and copy it to the c:\Windows\\system32 directory.

    You can';t register it using regsvr32 as it's not a self-registering file.

    Do a search on your computer for msvcr71.dll, choose the latest version and copy it to the c:\Windows\\system32 directory.

    Check version numbers so you know the higher version to copy or move to the system32 directory.
