- They are 32bit objects is office 32bit? I wouldn't think this would be the issue but it is possible.Nov 21, 2015
- Are you running a 64 bit office by any chance? Much old com can't talk to 64.Nov 21, 2015
- No 32 bit. Except for some Power Pivot users, I have not encountered the general user install or use 64 bit OfficeNov 21, 2015
- I got nothing that hasn't already been said. However I did read to try it with the full path to the dll surrounded by quotes
so that would be
to add the registration. Otherwise I am out.Nov 21, 2015
- I think I tried that
I went to Windows 7 and Office 2007. Registered. Looked in the registry and found a few small branches with the dll pathname. Gathering courage to run create those branches in Win 10Nov 21, 2015
- Thanks for helpingI got it working.
1. To register a .dll, ensure the .dll has no dependencies on other .dlls which may be missing. In this case, vbebookmarks.dll relies on msaddndr.dll which may or may not be already registered.
2. Ensure that the .dll you want to register is in a folder where there is no uncertainty about access rights. I gave up and copied it to the %systemroot%\syswow64 folder.
3. For 64 bit .dlls use regsvr32.exe in %systemroot%\system32, for 32 bit .dlls use regsvr32 in %systemroot\sysWoW64.
4. Use an elevated command prompt by running cmd.exe as Admin.
