iecore.dll error

[EDIT] It seems the images did not load. I have linked them instead
[EDIT2] I have re-installed the software multiple times, and used the latest version I have (17.3.1 Build 2491)

I am having trouble with NiceLabel 2017 on one of our machines.

I have a solution made, and when I attempt to view the solution in NiceLabel Print. The solution shows up (in the little thumbnail) with a circle with a cross through it. The user has read and write access to the folder (in screenshot below, I tested on admins desktop)

If I browse to the folder and double click one of the solutions to open the NiceLabel Designer, I get the following error.

This only happens with one machine, so I suspect it's more of a Windows problem than NiceLabel but am at a loss on where to look to resolve it.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Ian

Can you double check if you have the iecore.dll file in the c:\program files\nicelabel\nicelabel 2019\\x86 and c:\program files\nicelabel\nicelabel 2019\\x64 folders.

Is there any AntiVirus application blocking access to iecore.dll? Are there any event log errors?

Regards, Damjan

Thank you for the quick reponse.

The user of the computer in question is on holiday for a week so will not be able to check but I can remember seeing iecore.dll in both the x86 and x64 directories when I was investigating the issue last week.

I did not check Event Log, but will do this when I can.

One thing I did notice yesterday was that if I created a new solution (on the troublesome machine) and save into the same folder, then the new solution would appear along side the existing ones but with a working thumbnail. I could then open it as normal.

It appears to be a problem only with the existing three solutions.

If have to I'll re-create the solutions, trying to avoid this though as it will affect other users.

Something like a stack trace which is usually in the event log would be really helpful here.
But what is strange is that this happens only on one system. Maybe creating a new solution does not use some part of the code which would cause the crash and that is why it works then.

If this is system related I don't know what could we do here unless we somehow reproduce the problem here in the HQ. And even then I hope there is not something with .Net Framework or any other system related components.

Hello Damjan,

I agree it would be difficult to reproduce, as I can't even do it here.

I won't have access to the computer for another week but the more I think about it, the more I suspect it's the system and I understand you can't do anything your end if it is.
The solutions use an Access database, while the new test one didn't. Perhaps it's the Access Runtime gone off. I will attempt to re-install this when I can.

The solutions are just a form, with around a dozen label templates with Access data source.
My backup plan is just to re-create them all again, not ideal because of the work involved but not the end of the world either.

Before re-doing all the labels once again could you just check if you have Access Runtime 2013 installed. I know there are problems with 2016 versions and that 2013 is the most reliable one.
