Upgraded 32 Bit to Win 10 64 Bit

Postby shank on Tue Oct 29, 2019 7:52 am

I had Win 7, MS Access 2007, 32 Bit and used Morovia PDF417 for years, no problem. I upgraded to Win 10, MS Access 2019, 64 Bit and having problems.

File Not Found: MoroviaPDF417FontEncoder4.dll
This DLL is in folder C:\windows\SysWOW64
What do I need to edit to get MS Access to know where to find it?

The PDF417 Fonts 4 is supposed to support 32-bit Office program only.

A 64-bit process can not load 32-bit DLL. You can modify the VBA code to load MoroviaPDF417FontEncoder4_x64.dll instead (under c:\program files (x86)\Morovia PDF417 Fontware & SDK 4 directory). You will also need to change other part of VBA code to be 64-bit compliant.

If you are not familiar with 64-bit VBA code, you can

* Install 32-bit Office 2019 instead of 64-bit. Your existing program should work fine as before.
* Upgrade to PDF417 Fonts & Encoder 5. You can get a trial copy at http://www.morovia.com/fonts/pdf417/
