Error 2738: Could not access VBScript run time for custom action

Finally, Matrox has released version 9.0 of their MIL-Lite imaging library. Finally – because it is the first version with Vista support, and as most people know, Microsoft has ended selling Windows XP. I have got a hand of a beta version and installed it today. Up to now I have had to use a second computer with Windows XP to debug and run the applications. More on that at another time.

Anyway, as the application also use DAC boards from Computerboards (now Measurement Computing), I needed to instasll their Vista-compatible InstaCal driver too. Their drivers always work ok, so I was surprised when the installation repeatedly stopped with the error “Error 2738: Could not access VBScript run time for custom action”. After searching the Measurement Computing forums , I went to google and it turned out that this error stems from vbscript.dll not being registered. How on earth that windows component did get unregistered I do not know, but this procedure fixed the problem:
1. Run Command Prompt as administrator
1.1 Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories
1.2 Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator
2. Type cd c:\windows\system32 into the Command Prompt and hit Enter
3. Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll into the Command Prompt and hit Enter

    If you are running Vista 64 bit, you might want to run c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32 vbscript.dll instead of system32.. 🙂

    It seems that you have made some modification that is refidening variables or constant. Restore default scripts. If you need more assistance let us know which ASP file is producing that error.[]

    A mericans are in love with their cars, but QuotesChimp sure don’t love their auto insurance. Unfortunately, the joys of owning a car are often diminished by the realities of auto insurance. Or, to put it more graphically, auto insurance is to cars what buffalo chips are to bison.
