When adding an HTML template to a WebClass, Visual Basic may display the following error message in a WebClass Designer dialog box:

An unspecified error has occurred


The Triedit.dll, which is located by default in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Triedit folder or its dependent dynamic-link libraries (DLLs), may not be registered correctly.


Unregister and reregister the Triedit.dll by entering the following command in the Run box, accessed from the Start button, or within the Command Prompt:

   regsvr32 /u "c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\triedit\triedit.dll"
   regsvr32 "c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\triedit\triedit.dll"

You should be able to add an HTML template to your WebClass. If this does not work, the error may not be the Triedit.dll, but its dependent DLLs. You may have to update Internet Explorer to the latest version. Or, do an uninstall and reinstall of Internet Explorer.


This behavior is by design.


The Triedit.dll is installed with Visual Studio, Office, and Internet Explorer. When an HTML template is added to a WebClass, the Triedit.dll is used to parse the HTML template to search for tags that could trigger server events.
