Missing .dll Upon Conversion

Recommended Posts

Converting a vb6 program into a vb.net program appeared to be successful, but upon attempting to build the program in visual studio 2017, I am getting the error below. It appears that a .dll has not been created by the conversion software. How can I create this .dll or how can I configure the conversion tool to create the .dll successfully?


Error    BC2017    could not find library 'C:\Users\abowlin\Documents\Anthony M. Bowlin (2018)\Jobs\TRW Msetup Conversion 2\TRW Lebanon Version_.Net\Upgraded\AMB_Test5Support\bin\Debug\AMB_Test5Support.dll'

Visual Studio is telling you that you have a dependency on a DLL (AMB_Test5Support.dll) that it can't find in the location listed in your project file. Check your development environment and point VS to the correct path for that DLL and you should be ok.

That makes sense, but my concern is that AMB_Test5Support.dll does not exist. It is not in the upgrade folder created by the VBUC and was not a previously existing .dll on my computer. Is it possible the VBUC should have created the .dll but in fact did not?

Look in the VBUC references screen to see if that DLL was referenced by your original VB6 project. The VBUC would not create this--it's some kind of private library, not a Microsoft .NET library.
