VB6 on Vista, Error accessing the OLE Registry

When i open VB6 on Vista, i get this message “Automation Error, Error accessing the OLE Registry”.

To avoid this message appears again, i check compatibility to XP and “Run As Administrator”, and now i can work with VB6.


ActiveX component can’t create – DllRegisterServer failed – VB6 – Vista

I’m getting an Error 429 : ActiveX component can’t create object when trying to run a program that ran perfectly fine on Windows XP. It was created in VB6 but does not run on my version of Vista.

So i try to run regsvr32 to register some ocx and dll. But I got error message when i registered some *.dll or *.ocx with regsvr32 in vista,

“The module *.dll was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x800004005”.

The solution is to register the component from just a batch file, right-click and then click “Run as Administrator” fro pop-up menu.
