Crypt on vista (wodCrypt)

by Raj, Thursday, April 12, 2007, 16:48 (4623 days ago)

I have been using wodcrypt in my vb application for a year now. It was working fine in windows 2k and xp. Now we have couple of clients with vista operating system and I am trying to recompile the code and getting dllregister error.
The dll was not getting registered so I tried to manually register it and I am getting this error.
any suggestions.

Hi Raj,

I believe this is a problem with UAC (User account control) in Windows Vista.

You can try disable-ing it, or try running cmd.exe as an Administrator.

You can find more information here:

Hope this helps.

the module wodcrypt.dll was loaded but the call to dllregisterserver failed with error code 0x80020009.

I found the problem. I was not running cmd prompt as a administartor

going to the Start All Programs, Accessories, right click on
Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator and i tried regsvr32 it worked.
