    Hi
    I a working on a Win32 application and it depends on a dll to be installed on the system. When this dll is missing it gives out a message box 'suppress messagebox "Unable to Locate Component" - This application has failed to start because xyz.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

    Can I suppress this messagebox and display my own custom message ( I want to do my own check and display proper instructions).

    Thanks

    You have to do this using a dummy executable file which starts and checks everything and then starts your main application.

    The dummy executable checks the needed DLLs and then gives the needed messages.
