Runtime Errors in Vista and XP

Runtime errors frequently appear due to some unforeseen problems in programs that anyone might be using. For example, take a look at runtime errors that may appear on your Vista or Windows XP computers.

"Runtime error '429': ActiveX component can't create object"

The Runtime Error 429 is typically generated if you are trying to automate a certain action in the application of Office. The actions in the Office XP applications are actually automated by the help of the Windows COM architecture.

The Office XP Runtime Error 429 usually occurs in cases where the action that you try to automate wants to use either the "new" VB operator or the (VB) Visual Basic function to build an Office XP case.

The runtime error may occur when any of the following instances are true:

In order to fix these kinds of errors, the first thing to do is to re-register the application that is having the problem. For example, when you are having problems with Microsoft Word, you must open the command prompt and then you navigate to the folder of Office that contains the file Word.exe and then you must run word.exe\regserver and simply press the enter key. In case the template files create problems, you can fix it by simply deleting the file as you can recreate them easily. This template file will be recreated when you start the application. PC optimization and error fixing programs are also effective ways of tackling problems within your computer.

"Runtime Error '339' component 'MCI32.OCX' or one of its dependencies is not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

Windows Vista has Visual Basic 6.0 files which make it compatible with some worn out operating applications and operating systems. Users who are upgrading from XP to Vista might get runtime errors that are related to files like the mci32.ocx. They run the applications that actually use these kinds of files because these types of files are not provided with the Vista operating system.

The effective way of fixing the mci32 Vista problems is to uninstall and then reinstall the application that causes the mci32.ocx errors. To make sure that the program was completely uninstalled, it is great thing to do if you run a Windows database cleaner and/or PC optimization tool so that no entries will be left as you uninstall it. If there are still errors on it, you can download the most recent version of the mci32.ocx file taken from the Internet, copy this program in the C:\Windows\System32 folder and register it by running the "regsvr32.exe C:\windows\system32\MCI32.OCX" command.
