Dear all

Have a nice day.

I have one problem in vb6. I created a .tlb file in 2005 by adding Com class to project. I built the project, I got .tlb file and .dll files while building project, i selected "Register for Com interop" from project properties and built. It registered autometically and I can use created .tlb file in that PC in Vb6 working fine. if I deploy application to another PC and run I am getting "Error 429 ActiveX Component Can't create object" run time error. What I need to do? Please help me as soon as possible. I can't deploy the application to client due to above error.

one possible solution is to install .net frame work on client pc i never want to install .net framework any other solution will be most appreciatable.

Thank you,

I will be grateful to u

It can't create the object because COM-based (or exposed) libraries have to be registered on the machine or else the code can't find them

For a .NET assembly, this means using REGASM to register the assembly. For non-.NET assemblies, it's REGSVR32.

If you create an installer for your application, the installer usually takes care of this little detail for you.

If you're just copying files to the target machine, you'll have to manually register the .DLL.

There are two regasm.exe in the framework.
Make sure you're using the 32 bit one, not 64 bit! That could be the reason you don't get the registered COM object available in VB6.

Use C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasem.exe

I'm guessing you got downvoted because the original post is over 3 years old. However this is a valid point so I've upvoted this solution. In general however, I would advise avoiding responding to old posts.

Download the required dll file and copy the extracted file to this folder:



Reregister Concerning File

If you are getting a file name in the error description, then it is possible that particular file is not properly registered in the system registry database. In such a case, you need to re-register the file with the help of Command Prompt.

Close all open programs, if any.
Click Start, select Run.
Type CMD and press ENTER

Type the following command:Regsvr32 For instance, if the name of the OCX file is vbalexpbar6.ocx, then type the following command: regsvr32 vbalexpbar6.ocx
Press ENTER to execute the command.
Finally, type EXIT and press ENTER to close Command Prompt.

This will fix error code 429.

If problem still occurs then perform the following tasks::

Reinstall Windows Script
Repair Windows Script File Information in Registry

The most common problem people get with code on this site is VB's super friendly error 429, "ActiveX Can't Create Object". This might happen to you when you're running in the VB IDE, or when you're trying to distribute a EXE using vbAccelerator controls to a new machine.

As the solution, you need to re-registering scrrun.dll. This dll contains libraries for reading and writing scripts and text files. scrrun.dll is a system process that is needed for your Windows system to work properly.

scrrun.dll is available at C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder and use RegSvr32 command to register.

So where in the OP's post did you find anything about needing "scrrun.dll" or scripting support??
