I am using Graphics Mill as part of a Visual Basic project. The project runs fine from my workstation, but I get the following error when I run it from another machine: Error: -10: Method LoadFromFile failed. This format is not supported. I am looking at the exact same files (they are on a network drive). I built an install package using the Package and Deployment Wizard of VB so I could install my program on the other machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Scott Lewis slewis@checksinthemail.com

Hello Scott, It is most likely you did not include file GraphicsMill20BaseCodecs.dll into the install package, or did not made it installing into proper folder. Make sure that file structure of the Graphics Mill installation is a following:
Code:
|-GraphicsMill20.dll 
|-unicows.dll 
|-gdiplus.dll 
|-GraphicsMill20Cms.dll 
\ [b]GraphicsMill20Codecs[/b] 
|---GraphicsMill20BaseCodecs.dll 
|---... 
|---<dll files of any other codecs if any> 
|---... 
In other words, it should have the same structure as in Binaries folder of the package provided with us. Please let me know if you need instructions how to specify custom path for the files (some our customers had problems with it because of not very intuitive GUI of the PDW).

The PDW only puts the following files on the "target" machine: GraphicsMill20.dll GraphicsMill20Controls.ocx These files are in the \WinNT\System32 directory. Should I change that designation in PDW to put them in there own directory (\Program Files\GraphicsMill) and then create a subdirectory under that to hold the codec DLL? Or can I just include the Codec DLL in the package and let PDW drop it in the system32 directory? Thanks for any help, Scott Lewis slewis@checksinthemail.com

Here is an article of knowledge base that demonstrates how to set specific install folder for Graphics Mill files: http://www.aurigma.com/go?id=60 Please let me know if you have any questions for that.
