GpsToolsXP230.dll under Windows 7?

Fri Mar 25, 2011 6:46 pm

I have developed a Microsoft Access application, that uses GpsToolsXP230.dll to pull GPS data from an attached device into a database form. This application is used by the USDA, BLM, and other agencies.

It works great under Windows XP, but users who have upgraded to Windows 7 report the 'ActiveX component can't create object' error.

Aside from running in XP compatibility mode (which does appear to work), is there a fix/upgrade that would permit the same DLL to correctly operate under both OS's?
