I suppose you use an Access Version with normal VBA without .NET

This error is also displayed if there are unresoveld dependencies.
You dll might need the SSL libraries (libeay.dll, ssleay32.dll)

Registration is not always necessary. The search order involves
application path, working directory, Windows direcories and those in
%PATH% (network shares disliked).

The fastest way to produce working, clean and pretty code is writing a
C/C++-DLL in Visual-Studio and declaring its exported functions in VB.

I can give you further assistance
