Yes, CommDlg.dll needs to be installed. It is a well-known omission and there should be any number of sources for it on the web.

Cheers

Just my luck - its not playing ball at all. :(

Commdlg.dll was already there, tried a quick regsvr32 commdlg.dll  and it says it not an .exe and has no helper program?????

Not too sure what to try next, can't risk upsetting the XP install on the mill but want to use the new code:(

Its XP SP3 on the mill, same as my laptop.

Any other ideas???

have you tryed to run this code (sent this on page 4 of this thread):

Code: [Select]
'Make the MSComDlg.CommonDialog class available for use. Required for filedialog function.
function registerComDlg
    Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:StdRegProv")
    objRegistry.CreateKey &H80000001, "Software\CLASSES\Licenses\4D553650-6ABE-11cf-8ADB-00AA00C00905"
    objRegistry.SetStringValue &H80000001, "Software\CLASSES\Licenses\4D553650-6ABE-11cf-8ADB-00AA00C00905", "", "gfjmrfkfifkmkfffrlmmgmhmnlulkmfmqkqj"
end function

once in vbscripter window to Register MSComDlg ?
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

just been googling and it seems the DLL needed is comdlg32.dll not commdlg.dll

I tried this one and got a different message saying the dll was loaded but no registry server entry point was found??

Sorted :) :)

After a heavy session on the net, it seems its a license thing with the comdlg32.dll.

Easy way to fix was to install a tiny Microsoft app called "HTML Help Workshop", you can uninstall afterwards if wanted but its so small i just left it.

Dialog works perfectly now.

Thanks

i never understood all this ddl and ocx confusion in window's,
but i know that is based on my unavalible knowledge about
this stuff.
