DLL registration error with Microsoft Fingerprint Reader driver

DLL registration error with Microsoft Fingerprint Reader driver

Post by Sm9obiBMdW » Mon, 11 Jul 2005 22:02:02


I've never worked with XP Embedded before, but I have a new project that
requires me to get some hardware working with a preconfigured XPe system.

I'm having a problem with a Microsoft Fingerprint Reader device. When I try
to install the latest driver for it available at the MS Web site, things seem
to go fine for most of the installation, until the following error message
pops up:

"Error 1904. Module C:\Program Files\DigitalPersona\Bin\DpCtWiz.dll failed
to register. HRESULT -2147024770. Contact your support personnel."

The device installs without any problems on a regular XP Pro system, so I
know the error probably relates to some necessary component being missing on
the XPe machine. The various hits on Google for the 2147024770 error don't
seem to help on the target machine, and manually registering the DLL in
question fails with "LoadLibrary([DLLNAME]) failed - The specified module
could not be found."

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks,
John

Contact us at wecrt @ microsoft.com, my team recently componentized it.

We plan on sharing the component on the team blog later, ask Lynda if you
can experiment with the component right now if it's in a state where she can
share it. Note, that it will not contain the repository of files, you will
need to fill the repository with the files you extract from the installer
after installing it on pro.
