What is best practice for using one of multiple .dll's
I have an application that uses one of a selection of about five .dll's
depending on the user's environment. Each .dll has the same methods and
properties but in this case, uses a different video player. The application
is a conversion from VB6 where the dll name was read from the registry and a
generic object created so the program didn't have to change references to
the object's objects and methods... something like:
videoPlayer = GetString(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "Software\Velocedge",
Set videoCtl = CreateObject(videoPlayer)

Does this happen when you are in a limited user profile of Windows XP? If
so you will need to temporarily make the account as Administrator and then

I appreciate the fact that applications are becoming more versatile and able
to do things that we hardly thought possible in the past but I feel that in
this added complexity you are losing sight of the need to do simple things
easily without resorting to trial and error or consulting "help" which often
anyhow doesn't lead one straight to the solution! An example is how to
produce a chart with a series of months i.e Jan Feb Mar etc appearing on the
X axis. This is no doubt something that resulted naturally in the first

We had a problem when our exchange 2003 server crashed and the mailbox store
seemed to get messed up. However the .edb and .stm files appear to be
intact and cleanly shut down, (according to eseutil) but we cannot work out
how to mount them on the storage group in order to access the mailboxes.
Originally the mailbox store was called "Mailbox Store..." and it was
attached to the "First Storage Group". There is no longer a mailbox store
attached to the tree.
We can create a new mailbox store "backup" and mount the database with that
and the mailboxes do show up ...
