Regsvr32: "LoadLibrary failed - The specified module could not be found"

During a recent deployment I had had an issue with the registration of a DLL.  Part of the deployment process included the registration with RegSvr32. On one computer the registration failed with the error “LoadLibrary failed - The specified module could not be found”.  This error was a bit troublesome as the installation process was previously successful on several other computers. I verified the path was correct, the library existed, permissions were correct and more.

I used Process Monitor to trace the activity, filtered on the Regsvr32 process, and noticed that a dependent library was missing. Process Monitor indicated, in the list, the specific file that was not found. In the end I copied the missing library to the computer and the registration was successful.

What's this EXIF data?

Did you know that almost all digital cameras (including SmartPhones) save specific metadata, such as camera settings and scene information, within the image (photo) files that they create?

This information is called EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) data. Information such as the camera or phone make, model and image resolution is stored within the photo. GPS enabled cameras may also store location information from where the picture was taken.

whatmyphotosays.com lets you view the EXIF data for photos found on your computer or the internet.

Chrome OS Test Drive

Chrome OS

I use Parallels on the Mac to facilitate the use and testing of various operating systems. Parallels has built into it the option (File-Download Chrome OS from the main menu) for creating a Chrome OS virtual machine. I downloaded the pre-built Chrome virtual machine and gave it a test drive. Don’t get me wrong; I am huge Google fan, but y initial thoughts left me unimpressed. Chrome is basically Google on a device. I understand the intention of the OS on a netbook or mobile device, however I think when compared to other such operating systems Chrome has a bit of maturing to do.
