I am starting to export Ibase for my schools and I am getting calls about it installing correctly but when it is opened it gives them an error of propsys.dll not found. I spoke with mark and he emailed me the actual Propsys.dll file and when I put it in the correct spot the Ibase will work. However I just got a call saying it works under one account and when the school switches accounts to admin or guest it gives them the error "application failed to initialize properly. error:oxc0000022" I need this figured out ASAP! I cannot have my schools calling with these errors!

    Can you find out what operating system the school is using?

    One of the schools just got back to me and let me know they are using windows xp and will be switching to windows 7.

    Do you know what service pack? It sounds like they are not on Service Pack 3 (SP3) otherwise that file should be there.

    Apart from this problem not using SP# is a big security risk. They should do a Windows Update if they stay with XP

    I just spoke with the tech guy from one of our schools that is having problems and he said they are working on sp3.

    In that case I can't explain it. This is not a file we install, it comes with Windows. I don't know why it would be missing from their computer.

    Some info for you from Richard ....

    I've updated the iBase installer to drop propsys.dll into windows\system32 when the machine is running XP Service Pack 2. It does not do this for SP3, because propsys.dll comes with SP3.

    Extract SETUP.EXE from this zip file and overwrite the one create by SchoolMake:

    Note: If someone has copied propsys.dll from Windows Vistra or Windows 7 onto an XP installation, they should manually delete that file first before running our SETUP.EXE.

    Thanks so much! But, is this a one time thing? Or do we have to do it everytime we set up an Ibase?

    Only if the schools have old XP computers. If this works we will then include it as part of the next Schoolmake updates

    Bill has posted, and we are experiencing the same issues. I just attempted an install on an XP computer with Service pack 3 using the updated Setup executable. I received still the missing propsys.dll error.

    I have looked at 3 different XP SP3 computers I have in house and none of them have the dll.

    Hi Lindsey & Tomas

    The propsys.dll error is fixed in the latest SchoolMake, which I have just uploaded to our web site:

    If you want to update an existing installer without re-exporting from SchoolMake again, I've uploaded the iBase SETUP.EXE. You can overwrite the existing file. This is the exact SETUP.EXE that's in the new InstallSchoolMake(v4_2_0beta121004):

    Finally, if you want to fix an existing XP system without reinstalling you can download the propsys.dll file and copy it to WINDOWS\SYSTEM32:
