Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You are most likely using a post-patch-3 developer version 😉

There are a couple of libraries that cause the problem on 64 bit systems running Windows 7 or above, but ironically enough, those from developer patch 3 work well.

So you need to look for NN60.DLL and NNB60.DLL from patch 3, and replace your current ones with these.  They are available somewhere on the web (I remember I downloaded them some time ago).

    So, JEDF is the name of your database?  How did you run your forms on the old machine?

    Here is a link I just found.  I did not upload the file, so I cannot guarantee it is legit.

    No, you probably hit the wrong link on the 4shared page.  The file that you need to download is named "dll.zip". I downloaded yesterday when I posted the link, and it worked, and contained the 2 dll files you need.

    If for any reason that doesn't work, a Google search should help you.  That's what I did yesterday, and got several results.

    Sorry Jamil, if that didn't solve it, I'm afraid I won't be able to offer more help, since I cannot replicate the error you are seeing, and the solution I proposed had worked for me and many others several times in the past.

    Good luck.
