Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
I encountered the following error this afternoon when trying to install one of our programs that was written in VB6 on a vista machine and do not know why as i have done this before on a similar machine...PLEASE ADVISE
Run time error '339'
Component 'mswinsck.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid
I uninstalled the program and tried again but to no avail...
Will anyone be able to help??
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:
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.
type in cmd
Go to Start
type in the black screen
it will come back the c: prompt
Restart your PC

- 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:
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.
