If you are using any other operating system than Vista please see this article: http://www.rebrandsoftware.com/admin/supportEdit.asp?article_id=53

This error indicates that a file is not correctly installed on your system. In some cases it may be correctly installed for all standard users but not for the "Administrator" account, and you may only see this error when selecting "Run as Administrator".

The built in Administrator account is not intended to be used as a user account. It is very secure and will not allow program components to be registered. Instead you should create an account with administrative rights, and use it instead of the built in Administrative account. This will help solve runtime error 339/429 on our software, and lots of other software that you may install in the future. If you do not want to create a standard user account (not recommended) you can follow the instructions below:

If the problem started suddenly then a reinstall may fix it. If not, follow the directions below to register each file that is producing the error. You generally will only have to repeat the instructions 3 or 4 times:

Click start
In the search box type "cmd" without the quotes
When CMD.exe appears above the search box right click it and select "Run As Administrator". This will open a command prompt with admin rights.
Repeat the following for each file that is causing this error, replacing [filename] with the actual name of the file that is causing problems:


    -Type "regsvr32 [filename] /u" without the quotes
    -You will receive a prompt saying the file has been unregistered. Click OK.
    -Type "regsvr32 [filename]" (shortcut: press your UP ARROW and delete /u)
    -You will receive a prompt saying the file has been successfully registered.
    .......................................................
    try this

    Go to Start
    click Run
type in cmd
press enter

type in the black screen

regsvr32 MSWINSCK.OCX

Press enter
it will come back the c: prompt
then
Restart your PC

Try this,

- search and download a new copy of 'mswinsck.ocx'.
- Back up your current copy of MSWINSCK.OCX and copy the new version to the same file location. This file should be located in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\MSWINSCK.OCX
- in the quick search/run box of startmenu type:
regsvr32 \windows\system32\MSWINSCK.OCX

You should see a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded" just reboot and try the install again.

- You can also try downloading MSVB runtime6 from microsoft's site. but i suggest you try the aforesaid steps first.

lemme know if that helps.

I am trying to install Titanic: Adventure out of Time for Windows 98. My computer currently has Windows Vista. I keep getting the following errors while trying to install the gam: this file does not...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. The problem that you have occurs because the program or application that you are trying to install is not compatible with windows vista. The game was released before the release of windows vista or even xp that's why it is not working. You can check the maker of the game and see if they release the patch for the windows vista version if not then there's no way you can play it on your system.
Thanks

Where can I get free download of Visual Basic 6.0 installer?


Visual Basic 6.0 is no longer supported by Microsoft so how do you get a hold of it? Currently there is not an easy legal way to get a hold of VB6. Yes that's correct - although people will tell you to simply download a bit-torrents for VB6, this is not legal because you did not buy a VB6 license. Stupid I agree considering that Microsoft does not allow you to purchase a license.

If you simply need to install an application that was originally written in VB6 you can download the Runtime Installer for VB, install it, and then install your VB program. If you want to get a hold of the VB6 developer environment I suggest asking friends that might have it and no longer use it - for example companies that maybe bought legitimate copies and are willing to give up their license (although you would need to verify this is legal and that the license is transferable). Another option is to try and buy it on EBAY.

Windows Vista Blue Screen Error


Try this...on boot up hit F8 and select SAFE MODE and see if you can get in that way. Look on the control panel for add and remove programs...eliminate Uniblue from the program list. Reboot and you just may be fortunate.
Isn't it funny that the program that is messing up your machine is the one (for money) will fix it.
I still think the best way to update drivers is right from the manufacturer (ATI , nVidia, ASUS,)or the computer company (Dell-Gateway-HP) they all have driver updates for FREE in their Support area look for Drivers and Downloads. To contact their sites try the Company name and .com
I also think if things are running along just fine...don't update until performance suffers. Like your daddy told you...if it ain't busted, don't fix it.
hope this helps...good luck my friend

I can not install OfficeSuite. I have Windows Vista home Premium. I had downloaded updates all afternoon and it still shows error 1719 Window installer not correctly installed. Help!


Download:Windows Vista Service Pack 1

I tried personally in WIN-XP worked same applies to Vista.

Error Message:
Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed. Translation:
This message might appear when you’re trying to add or remove a program that installs via a Windows Installer MSI (Microsoft Software Installation) package file. The Windows Installer Service is the standard method for installing and uninstalling software on Windows XP. It keeps track of all of the components that need to be installed for a particular program to run and ensures that any files that are shared by programs are not removed when one of those programs is uninstalled. The Error 1719 is an indication that some Windows Installer Service files are missing or have become damaged. Solution:
The first thing to try is re-registering Windows Installer in the Windows registry. Make sure that no other programs are running and then click Start, Run, type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK. Next, click Start, Run, type misexec /regserver in the Open field, and click OK. Restart your computer and try installing or uninstalling again.

If you’re still getting the error message, the next step is to try reinstalling the Windows Installer files. In order to do this, you’ll first need to rename the existing files.

First, click Start, Run, and type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK.

In My Computer, click Search and locate the following three files: msi.dll, msiexec.exe, and msihnd.dll. They are hidden files so you’ll need to select Search Hidden Files And Folders under More Advanced Options. When you’ve found the files, rename them, by removing the .dll and .exe extensions and replacing them with an .old extension(for example msi.dll becomes msi.old).

Once you’ve renamed the files, WinXP will automatically replace them with a new copy from the dllcache (a hidden folder where copies of important system files are kept in case you mistakenly delete or rename critical system files). Restart your computer and try to install or uninstall the program again.

Finally, if neither of the above processes corrects the problem, boot into Safe Mode, and go through the above steps again, first re-registering and then reinstalling.

or
