When I open my computer I get a message box stating “run time error “339′: component ‘MSCOMCT2.OCX’ or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid”
Can you please advise on how I can fix this problem. The computewr is a Acer laptop and is running on Vista Home Premium with an update.
The problem is part of a program hasn’t been properly registered by Windows Vista. It’s a simple task to fix it.
Click the Start button and in the Vista Search Box type run. A list will appear and at the top you will see a program called Run. Click the Run program.
A Run box will appear, type in the box the following line.
regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\mscomct2.ocx
Then select OK.
You will see a message box saying the unregistered succeeded and you’ll need to select OK.
Repeat clicking the Start button and opening the Run program.
This time type regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\mscomct2.ocx and select OK.
You will see a message box saying DllRegisterServer in C:\windows\system32\mscomct2.ocx succeeded select the OK button.
This should fix the problem, if you get a message that mscomt2.ocx is missing or not installed then you’ll have to reinstall it as we describe in another question.
Fixing this problem can be fiddly and difficult, so you might want to call a computer tech if you are encountering problems.
