I am using windows xp. I tried to install a software to my computer which is for windows98. I solved the problem about gpib-vdd.dll. But now the sortware is not working because of the mfc42.dll file. (My opinion). I checked the mfc42.fll files on my computer I cleaned them. Now I have got only one and it is 6.2.4131.0. version.When I checked the computer which has got windows98 its mfc42.dll version is 6.0.8447 and the software is working without problem at this computer. Should find this version of mfc42.dll file and copy it to my computer or how can I solve this problem.

Thank yo for your help.

Try copying the older version of the dll to the same directory as the executable. BUT make sure it is not a directory in the path.

(Hopefully)When the executable trys to run it will look in it's own directory first for the dll.

Isn't there an xp version of the software available? Good Luck

Since it was copied, you probably have to unregister and re-register the file. Whole other science involved in this.

The Regsvr32.exe is an application that is used to register dynamic-link
libraries (DLLs) and ActiveX controls in the Microsoft Windows 95 and
Microsoft Windows NT registries. For example, to manually register the
Sample.ocx ActiveX control, you type the following at the MS-DOS prompt:

c:\Regsvr32.exe Sample.ocx

NOTE: This assumes that Regsvr32.exe and Sample.ocx are both in the root
directory on drive C (c:\).

Regsvr32.exe has the following command line switches:

/u - Unregister server
/s - Silent; displays no message boxes
/c - Console output

If you don't have: Regsvr32.exe, you can download it from Microsoft at:
good Luck,

I did things all said here but they did not work. I also asked for the company for a new software for windows XP. I am still waiting for the answer. The application file of the software is a MFC application. What could i do for more to solve this.
