Issue

CatTools Service and Manager fail to start and show the following error:
 
Error Number: 429
Description: ActiveX component can't create object

Environment

All Kiwi CatTools versions

Cause

This issue occurs when initializing a file system object fails which also refers to scrrun.dll.

Resolution

Note: Use an administrator account to make the changes.

Option 1

1. Find the Scrrun.dll file in the System32 folder (for machines running on 32 bit) or Syswow64 folder (for machines running on 64 bit).

2. Register these commands in the prompt using regsvr32 command:

regsvr32 -u C:\WINDOWS\System32\scrrun.dll
regsvr32 C:\WINDOWS\System32\scrrun/dll
regsvr32 - u C:\WINDOWS\SysWow64\scrrun.dll
regsvr32 C:\WINDOWS\SysWow64\scrrun.dll

3. Run CatTools.

Option 2

If the error still exists after running CatTools, or dll is still not found:

1. Copy a scrrun.dll file from any CatTools installed machine

2. Add in the file to the System32 folder or Syswow64 folder.

3. Repeat step 2 in Option 1.

4. Run CatTools.
