If you are planning to run a 32 bit dll on 64 bit server (and/or using this dll on 64 bit oracle server) you will get error in the procedure (in ORDCOM.CreateObject method)

here is the simplest solution to solve this problem.

  1. Unregister your dll using %windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe\regsvr32 XXXX.dll /u (for all your dlls)
  2. Register you dll using %windir%\syswow64\regsvr32\ XXXX.dll
  3. Open Component Services
  4. Create a new Application under COM+ Applications
  5. Click Next -> Create an Empty Application -> Enter the name -> Select the Activation type, I will leave it as Server Application -> Next -> Finish
  6. Select the application folder you created
  7. Create New Component
  8. Click Next->Install New Components -> Locate your 32 bit dlls folder and select the dll's which you want to add -> Next -> Finish
  9. Now its a good idea to look at the secury options for your component and set then as you desire.
  10. Now close the Component Services
  11. Try accessing the procedure where your compenent is accessed thru ORDCOM CreateObject

Hope this helps.

Passed Exam 70-551
UPGRADE: MCAD Skills to MCPD Web Developer by Using the Microsoft .NET Framework

Yesterday I passed 70-551 exam scoring 760. I was preparing for this paper from last 2 months spending couple of late night hours.

This paper is combination of

MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-528): Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Web-Based Client Development

MCPD Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-547): Designing and Developing Web-Based Applications Using the Microsoft .NET Framework

MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-536): Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0—Application Development Foundation

Exam is divided into 3 section and totally contains 88 questions and need to score 700 to pass failing in one section will result in failing all sections.

Exam Number
70-527 (Section 1)
70-528 (Section 2)28
70-547 (Section 3)30

This is one of the tough paper to pass and the passing rate is very low more information you can visit

Kenyans sings Indian National Anthem

This is a video attempt by leading film makers to change the way we think of other countries. This film, one of four to be shown on Pangea Day, on May 10, “the day the world comes together through film”, is directed by Bob Nyanja.

Can we sing Kenya national anthem?
