SetPhoneNumber results in "External component has thrown..."

Post by PhilEtchell » Thu Mar 24, 2005 12:47 pm

I'm using the fax control, version 11.06, from C#. When calling SetPhoneNumber I get an error: "External component has thrown an exception." This works on some machines but not others so I'm guessing I'm missing a dependancy in the install, but I can't find out what.

Any suggestions?

We do not have any similar reports from any customers, are you able to reproduce this issue using one of the unmodified sample applications?

We recommend using the Microsoft Dependency Walker Utility (included with Visual Studio) to determine exactly which DLLs and additional Microsoft components are required. You can then include these components in your installation to ensure that they are present on every machine.
