Paragon Hard Disk manager is a product.
Paragon Partition Manager is another product.
There should be .scripts around for older version, most probably by reviewing them you should be able to find the issue.
It is possible that that .dll needs to be registered.

I initialy used InstallRite to gernerate the first report. Then I used WinInstall to double check. They were pretty much the same. I may have missed a file, but i don't think that is the case. I double checked the installation to make sure. This moring I extracted all the files from the Paragon MSI file (I havent compared them yet, will do that tonight.)
I think it has to do with the dll registtration just like Wonko suggest. I imported all the registry entries and have verified that they are in the livexp registry. I am doing something wrong,, have i missed a step?
Is there a proper method of registring a DLL, Shouild i be doing anything diferrently, I registrerd the DLL manually in liveXP, but recieve a load library error. Please le me know your thoughts
Thanks for all the assistance!

Maybe running Dependency Walker and profiling the app (once in the "working OS" and once in PE) may help.
But still, is it "Paragon Hard Disk manager" OR "Paragon Partition Manager" ?
Running Regsvr32 should work, but not *all* .dll actually *need* to be registered, and some of these will also "say" so with an error.

I am going to try the dependecy walker suggestions above tonight when i get home. Hopefully this will give me more hints on what the problem is.
thanks for the feedback.

Do review also the "old version" .script, maybe you find something.
There used to be a 9 .script, but was lost in one of the internal boot-land wars:
maybe you can post a request, soem of the most aficionados VistaPE fans may have a copy.
MInd you there may be others "around", *somewhere*.

You might be right.
But my portable one doesn't need any file to register and working well.
May be wrong version

The screnshot you attached is for Paragon HARD DISK manager:
May be wrong version
We finally got that ylafont is talking about Paragon PARTITION manager:
Can you spot the difference?

Exactly, no need to register any file for Paragon Partition Manager 11 free edition.
Tested already so many times,
Posted 23 May 2011 - 07:19 PM
You just introduced another variable. "Free edition" (vs. "Server").

I'm talking about my experiences
I've been using Paragon software many versions and editions with portable. No one is needed to register a file. So I thought logically, there should not need to register a file.
Unfortunately, I don't have the version he expressed. So I can't prove in this state.
Paragon HD Manager 9 professional:
Paragon HD Manager 10 Server.
Paragon Partition Manager 11 free edition.

Why you don't post your .script's for these you have working?
Maybe this way ylafont can spot what is missing from his one.

It is a fun to play.
If I told which files are needed straight away, it was not interesting like that.
It needs only 2 files.
Put into program folder and it is
Sorry, forgot to answer.
I have no mood to create a script at the moment. But I did many in the past.

PS - prgiso.dll is already in the program folder in later versions as I know.

They were .Dll registry entries in the in the after snapshop of WinInstall. I imported then and one of those entry was HDM.DLL so i am not sure if it needed to be resistered.
I am cleaning up the script file and removing the help and other stuff they is not needed. Will posted it, once i am done.
thanks for everyone assitnace. I would have surrely not happened it you guys did not chime in. thank you.

Sometimes reading answers to FAQ's does help, you know, like :
I took me a little time to figure out it was this file as depenndacy walker was also reporting that other files were missing like msjava.dll.
Q. Why is MSJAVA.DLL showing up in yellow (missing module) and I get a "Warning: At least one delay-load dependency module was not found" message?
A. The MSHTML.DLL module that was released with Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2003 SP1 has a delay-load dependency on MSJAVA.DLL. Missing delay-load dependencies are not a problem as long as the calling DLL is prepared to handle the missing module. Dependency Walker flags all potential problems as it cannot detect if an application intends to handle the issue. In this particular case, MSJAVA.DLL is an optional module, and MSHTML.DLL is prepared to handle it. This warning can be ignored. See the "How to Interpret Warnings and Errors in Dependency Walker" section in help for more details.

Naah, don't feel bad , I would say that half the people that ever used Dependency Walker has fallen for that, including yours truly .
Actually, I had used it on 2K for years without ever a problem, then the first time I had to use it on XP (already SP2) and I started getting the stoopid missing MSJAVA.DLL, it took me several hours before I realized that the info was there.
