Error in loading DLL (Visual Basic)

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.

To correct this error

  • 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.
