Failed to load the VPEngine runtime DLL (vpee3261.dll)

Postby Skov_K » Mon May 08, 2017 4:09 pm

Hi

I have tried to use the ActiveX for displaying the VPE.
It works on the machine where the VPE package is installed, but not in on other PC's.
I get a dialog showing "Failed to load the VPEngine runtime DLL (vpee3261.dll)"

I have created lpk file.
I have build the cab file using makecab.exe
The dep, ocx and dll all ends in system32
I have changed IE settings to allow unsigned ActiveX

What am I missing?

Solved.
I needed the vJavaScript3261.dll
By using the dependency walker I could see that a dll was missing. http://www.dependencywalker.com/

Basically we do not recommend using the ActiveX within Internet Explorer. The better route is to create PDF files on the server and upload them to the client into the browser. This way you are independent of the browser (ActiveX only work inside IE) and you are also platform independent, as the client browser can run on any platform, including mobile platforms.
