    Default DLL with unknown project/class name

    I have a DLL and I know the functions it contains (and the parameters needed in each). I don&#039;t have the source code so I don&#039;t know the project name and the class name(s). Is it possible to use functions from this DLL in an ASP application?<BR>Thank you.<BR>Dimitris

    Thank you santhosh for the quick reply.<BR>The library I want to use isn&#039;t on the "Available References" window, so I manually select it using "Browse..." and get the following error message "Can&#039;t add a reference to the specified file".<BR>The DLL is working perfectly with VB when I add to a VB project a module with the function declarations (provided by the DLL manufacturer).<BR>Any ideas?<BR>Dimitris<BR>

    Default If I understand correctly, you are looking for the

    program id for a .dll that you did not write. One quick way to find it, would be to register it on your server and then use the OLE/COM Viewer tool from Microsoft. You can download from their site for free.<BR><BR>Pete

    Another problem is that I cannot register the library, I get the message "... the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. DllRegisterServer may not be exported, or a corrupt version of ..."<BR>So many problems! :-/

    It was created by Athena (www.athena-scs.com). I have to write a smart-card application and I need the dll (ase32.dll) to open/close the card, read/write ect. I have contacted Athena and they said I have to buy the Delevoper&#039;s Kit...<BR>Anyway thanks for your time!<BR>Dimitris
