I have PBWIN 7, upgraded to 7.01, 7.02, 7.03 and 7.04.
Everything worked fine until I upgraded OS from
Windows2000 to XP Professional.

Now, when compiling it comes with

Cannot find ///Fast Hardlock Driver

and then
HLVDD.DLL. An instalable Virtual Device Driver failed DLL
initialization. Choose CLOSE to terminate application.

Whats wrong?

PB compiler is a 16bit app.
Sounds similar to the shell.dll problem === virus!
Some virusses throw away dll's.

hi Edwin,

I must tell you I am not connected with that
(development)computer to internet at all
for security reasons.
All I did was just upgrade from W2000 to W XP Pro using
licenced software.

Any further suggestions?

Regards

Hardlock is Aladdin key device driver. Clean autoexec/config.nt and re-install the driver.

Hardlock is enough known trademark of hardware keys for software protection.
You can find drivers for it, for example, on http://www.ealaddin.com/support/hardlock/downloads.asp

Meanwhile, there are many models, and, as I understand, Aladdin is not alone.

Best of all, to understand, which driver was installed, to re-install the driver from eAlladin site, and then uninstall.

Added later.
I use MemoHasp keys. Installer includes drivers for Hasp and Hardlock keys.
I ran command line Hinstall.Exe under 2k with flags -i - alldrv
Hlvdd.dll appeared in Windows\System32
The driver doesn't add lines to autoexec/config, but it installs the service.

Hinstall.Exe -r, as I understand, should remove the service (I am lazy to reboot to test this fact).

Semen,

you were right, the problem was with Hardlock Device Driver
which I deinstalled using Add/Remove programs.

Thanks both to Edwin and Semen,
regards to all
Branko
