"loadlibrary("c:\PDFstamp.dll") failed - the specified module could not be found

Our Powerbuilder application is uses a file-copy deployment, what is needed to deploy your PDFstamp.dll?

I meant if I deploy my application with PDFStamp.dll in the application folder is that sufficient or does your dll need to be registered or any registry settings need to be added? I didn't see anything in your user manual about deployment and I can't get the VB code example to work.

Thanks,

This is the same code I have. When I run the app, click on Test for PDFStamp button, I get error "run-time error '53': file not found: PDFstamp.dll" I have put the full path of PDFstamp.dll in and it still can't find it. Do I need to register the dll with regsvr32? I can't add it as a reference to the project.

I have tried to register the dll and get this error: "loadlibrary("c:\PDFstamp.dll") failed - the specified module could not be found" If I register it from the BIN folder I get "...\bin\PDFstamp.dll was loaded, but the DLLRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file can not be registered"

------------------------------------

You may put PDFstamp.dll and other DLL files to system32 folder and run your EXE again, your EXE will able to load pdfstamp.dll properly.
