Error in loading DLL (Visual Basic)
Updated: July 20, 2015
For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.
A dynamic-link library (DLL) is a library specified in the
Lib clause of a
Declare statement. Possible causes for this error include:
The file is not DLL executable.
The file is not a Microsoft Windows DLL.
The DLL references another DLL that is not present.
The DLL or referenced DLL is not in a directory specified in the path.
If the file is a source-text file and therefore not DLL executable, it must be compiled and linked to a DLL-executable form.
If the file is not a Microsoft Windows DLL, obtain the Microsoft Windows equivalent.
If the DLL references another DLL that is not present, obtain the referenced DLL and make it available.
If the DLL or referenced DLL is not in a directory specified by the path, move the DLL to a referenced directory.
