I am trying to configure the Microstrategy Intelligence Server on a Windows Server 2003 Small Business Server.

When I login while configuring, it gives me the error:

The ORDINAL 2821 could not be located in the dynamic link library LIBEAY32.dll

After much searching, it seems that the error is with the libeay32.dll file - either a newer version is needed or the current DLL is not registered.

When I tried to register the DLL with the command:

regsvr32 libeay32.dll

I got the error:

DllRegistryServer EntryPoint not found.

Any ideas? My aim is to configure the Microstrategy Intelligence Server.

Do a search for all the copies of libeay32.dll on your system, starting at the root of C:, rename all copies to something like libeay32.dl! to get them out of the way (might need to boot into safe mode for this) and then make sure that you end up with a single copy of the latest (by date) version of the dll in %SystemRoot%\system32 (probably C:\windows\system32), reboot and try again.

trying that, but there is only 1 copy of the file!! no other copies were found on the system. :/ – manishKungwani Apr 19 '11 at 12:46

libeay32.dll is most likely part of OpenSSL. It's not a COM library that would need registered with revsgr32, but rather a regular code library. It's also normally paired up with ssleay32.dll. You can find the latest windows binaries at Shining Light Productions, but it's not a guarantee that they'll work with that product.

The best thing to do in this case is get in contact with the vendor and ask them about it -- these are libraries that should have been bundled with and deployed with the application.
