MTS and P & DW

By afisher ·
I have an application with VB forms at the front end, a COM DLL registered in MTS on a server as the middle tier and an Access 2K database on the same server as the back end. I have never used MTS before, so I?m not sure that I?ve covered all of mybases.

While creating an installation package for my client, I receive the following message:

Missing Dependancy Information

Below is a list of files for which dependency information could not be found. To proceed without the dependency information for the file(s), click OK. To permanenty mark a file as having no dependencies, selects its checkbox.

The files listed are CompDataServer.dll (my middle-tier component) and MSWORD9.OLB. I use the MS Word object model in my project. I am not very familiar with dependency files, so I?m not sure whether or not I need to create any for my project.

After I install the client package on a client machine and run it, I get the following error message:

Run-time errror ?429?:

ActiveX component can?t create object

The error occurs when I click the Submit button on my security form, which runs code containing the first instantiation of a class from my component. I have the DLL referenced in my project references and I included the client configation executable in the package, which I exported from MTS using the component export utitity. Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide!

In the packaging and distribution wizard, on the 2nd or third step, you can select Dependencies for the packet type, (instead of the standard set-up packet). Do this for each of your DLLs. This will create the dependency file in the directory where the project is for the Dll or Exe. It will list all of the objects needed to run the Dll along with any additional Dlls that are needed to run those objects as well. This .Dep file needs to be in the same directory where the Dll is located that is being used in the final set-up program, (can be the Windows System32 Direc
