    Solved: "Error in loading DLL" adding vb Reference to Photoshop CS5.1 (CS5.5)

    t_evert

      It took me a while to solve this so I thought I'd post the solution.

       

      On two machines (one 32-bit the other 64-bit) running the new Phonoshop CS5.1 that ships with CS5.5, I had trouble adding a reference in vb (vba) to the Photoshop Object Library for scripting:

       

      I would just get: Error in Loading DLL

       

      It appears that on both machines, the CS5.5 installer incorectly referenced the dll which is called "ScriptingSupport.8li" (not exactly a .dll-looking name but anyway ;-)

       

      The Adobe CS5.5 installer set the system registry to look for the file in:

      C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 (64 Bit)\Plug-ins\Automate

      or

      C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1\Plug-ins\Automate

       

      but installed the file to:

      C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 (64 Bit)\Plug-ins\Extensions

      or

      C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1\Plug-ins\Extensions

       

      I copied ScriptingSupport.8li from the Extensions folder to the Automate folder and it started working.

       

      Hope this helps someone else. :-)
