Snap-in error in Progress Explorer


It's because you need to register the file that comes with the patch, which is proexptlr.dll. It is stated in the README.PAT file and should be followed very carefully. So what you need to do is, simply follow the README.PAT file and it goes like this:

1. You should close, then open the Progress program to verify that the patch is working perfectly.

2. Register the file prox.dll by opening the RUN command and entering this code.

[PROGRESS]binregsvr32.exe [PROGRESS]binprox.dll

3. Now you register the proexptlr.dll.

[PROGRESS]binregsvr32.exe [PROGRESS]binproexptlr.dll

This will solve your problem.

In case you are running the progress explorer using an account that does not have administrative privileges, then that is the cause of that problem. You will need to switch to an administrator account to be able to execute the progress explorer tool successfully.

You may also be missing some .reg files, which therefore you may need to look for them and load them to your system to solve that problem. In case the problem is on many machines that you are using, then you will need to load the registry files on all those machines. In case that does not solve the problem yet, then you will need to do the reinstallation of the application so as to get rid of any bugs that might be in the current installed application.
