I am running an application that was written for XP on a windows 7 machine.

I run the application in compatibililty Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and as administrator.

at a certain stage the application makes use of a DLL that it cant find, as seen in this picture: enter image description here

what should I try next to make this work? No one else is logged onto the machine so I know the DLL is not being used.


I attempted this and also received an error:

Did you try regsvr32 again with the proper DLL name this time? – Karan Jun 5 '13 at 22:08

Try manually registering the DLL:

regsvr32 c:\progs\shopplot.dll

Also, ensure the user the program is running as has access to that folder/file.
