Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Hey there, I was trying to install my Brother DCP-560CN on my Windows XP system and got the error after reboot: "Failed to start the ControlCenter. The required registry information is missing. Please re-install the Multi-Function Suite. (CC3-001-00001907)" Now the printing and copying are working fine, but scanning is not. I tried the installation on a Vista system and all the functions work well. Hoping to get some advice, Cheers!
I guess I found a solution for the problem.
I also got this error message after installing ControlCenter3. Failed to start ControlCentre3 - re-install software, with the error No CC3-001-00001907. The numbers at the end can change, but that's not important.
I have two laptops running vista. I got this error with the 1st laptop. Then I tried it with the second laptop, it worked fine. That made me think: On the first laptop I had tried to install the ControlCenter3 from the CD, but it turned out that the CD did not support Vista. Then I got the vista driver/ControlCenter3 package from the Brother website. This is the one that did not work on laptop one. What I then guessed was, that I had some ugly remains from the installation of the old driver (not for vista). I started cleaning the registry. First of all I run the driver uninstall program from Brother (free from their website) then I cleaned the registry with CCleaner (freeware). Still that was not enough. I started the regedit program and started searching for the term Brother. It was still there in about 10 or more places. I deleted all records that were connected with my brother printer (a DCP-130C). Then I run CCleaner once more. Then I installed the vista driver package (from brother website). Restarted and voila: it worked. ControlCenter3 workes fine now. I started the ControlCenter3 update (also on brother website) and finally with the scanner utility put the scanner resolution limit up higher. That's it.
Before working with the registry make a backup, please.
This procedure should also work for other brother printers using the controlcenter3. It should also work for other systems than vista.
Cheers, hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: Using Windows 7, Trying to
After doing a bit of reading, it seems the Brother MFC-240C model is discontinued. I didn't see any support for windows 7, so what we can try is changing the compatibility.
1) Uninstal the suite/drivers, then restart your computer.
2) Reinstall the suite/drivers and restart your computer once again.
3)Look for BrCtrCen.exe in the directory of where ever the suite is installed.
Should be either
C:\Program Files (x86)\Brother\ControlCenter3\BrCtrCen.exe (for 65 bit windows)
C:\Program Files\Brother\ControlCenter3\BrCtrCen.exe (For 32 bit windows)
4) Right click BrCtrCen.exe, go to compatibility options and set the compatibility to vista.
