View Full Version : App Paths problem on some machines

We are using the registry's App Paths section to register our products supporting folder so that when the app runs/starts it can load the files from these common folders.

We seem to be having an issue on some of our custom machines that the supporting files are not found. The paths are correct, but the files are just not found and therefore the app fails with missing dll errors. When the files are move to the root folder or Windows\System32 folder then the apps run correctly.

Could anyone tell me if there are any settings in Windows XP that will prevent the app from using the apps path to load the supporting/depend dlls or any other reason why the app paths is not used to search for the dependent/supporting dll files?

Any help would be appreciated.
