Abstract: Solution to the "BORDBK51.DLL is missing or not registered" problem.


When I try to run or debug a project I get the error message "Debugger kernel BORDBK51.DLL is missing or not registered". How do I solve this problem?


The solution to the BORDBK51.DLL is Missing or Not
Registered problem is:

1) Run a Find "Files or Folders" for BORDBK51.DLL.

   The file bordbk51 is most likely in the folder:
   (Drive letter may vary according to your setup).
   Running a Find "Files or Folders" will confirm this
   or find the actual location.

2) Using a COMMAND PROMPT, navigate to the directory
    containing the DLL (whichever directory holds the file).

3) At the COMMAND PROMPT type "regsvr32 bordbk51.dll".

   If the computer responds with "bad command or namefile",
type the following at the command prompt:

For Windows 95/98:

   path =%path%;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM

For Windows NT:

   path =%path%;C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32

...and then re-enter the command "regsvr32 bordbk51.dll".

This should solve the problem.


Windows 95 Example:

    = "Press the enter key"

1. Start Button -> Run   Enter "command"  in the window
     next to "Open:" and click OK.


2. Type "cd.."  WITHOUT the quotation marks.


3. Type "cd progra~1" 

C:\Program Files>

4. Type "cd common~1" 

C:\Program FilesCommon Files>

5. Type "cd borlan~1" 

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Borland Shared>

6. Type "regsvr32 bordbk51.dll" 


If the computers response is "Bad command or name file",

For Windows 95/98:

   - Type "path =%path%;C:\WINDOWSSYSTEM"

   Then type "regsvr32 bordbk51.dll" 

For Windows NT:

   - Type "path =%path%;C:\WINNTSYSTEM32"

   Then type "regsvr32 bordbk51.dll" 

This should solve the problem.
