It is a really simple, bare bones, no frills app. I'm getting the can't find resources startup message ... so I don't think any activex is involved. Anyway... dependency checker... Care to recommend one? The installers won't work because this is a very high security deployment ... I doubt I'd be allowed to copy anything into ...\system32 in order to do an 'official' install. _____ From: nycfoxsig-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:nycfoxsig-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jay Berardinelli Sent: Wednesday, September 10, 2008 10:49 PM To: nycfoxsig@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [nycfoxsig] Re: rt can't find components what about any activex components you may be using? are you using any visual foxpro classes? they may use some activex without you knowing about it. run a dependency checker on your executable.

Yet I get this error which seems to indicate that the exe can't find one or more of the components, even though they are all (gdiplus vfp9r, vfp9t & vfpenu ) right there. Has anyone run into this?
