Hi,

   Two people have reported getting the following Error Message on Windows 7 Machines:

Exception EOleSysError in modle pdf4exp.dll at 0001F20D.
Error loading type library/DLL.


   Most likely, there is a Windows or Anti-Virus Security policy setting somewhere set to not allow you to run ActiveX libraries outside of the system folder. I was not able to easily find where that setting is located either via Google or by manually looking at the Control Panel >> Administrator tools >> Local Security Policy. If anyone knows, please post the answer here.

   To keep you going, here is an alternate solution which was shown to work.

   32 bit version of Windows
  1. Copy the file pdf4exp.dll from the program folder to the system folder as follows:
    • FROM: C:\Windows\Program Files\PDF reDirect
    • TO: C:\Windows\System32
  2. Register pdf4exp.dll via a Command Line as follows:
    • Start Menu >> Type “cmd”
    • Right-click the cmd entry, and choose “Run As Administrator”
    • Type: cd C:\Windows\System32
    • Type: regsvr32 pdf4exp.dll
    • A message should appear saying “DllRegisterServer in pdf4exp.dll succeeded”

   64 bit version of Windows
  1. Copy the file pdf4exp.dll from the program folder to the system folder as follows:
    • FROM: C:\Windows\Program Files (x86)\PDF reDirect
    • TO: C:\Windows\Syswow64
  2. Register pdf4exp.dll via a Command Line as follows:
    • Start Menu >> Type “cmd”
    • Right-click the cmd entry, and choose “Run As Administrator”
    • Type: cd C:\Windows\Syswow64
    • Type: regsvr32 pdf4exp.dll
    • A message should appear saying “DllRegisterServer in pdf4exp.dll succeeded”

   I hope this helps.

NOTE: Although this will get you going, you will need to remember to do that every time you upgrade PDF reDirect in the future (bug fixes, improvements).
