Thread: SBuilder For FS9

  1. Default SBuilder For FS9

    Cannot get SBuilder for FS9 to work get
    "Run-time Error 339 Component 'COMDLG32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is messing or invalid"
    I have checked forum for similar errors, none found or I didn't go far enough.
    Computer has been completely restored.
    Everything else seems to be working fine.
    'COMDLG32.OCX' and 'TABCTL32.OCX' are in the "System32 folder"

    I have tried FSDeveloper Forum, as of now I haven't received a answer.

    You need to run a registration utility as regsrv32 under the command prompt. (This is not a product registration but a Win thing.) Please see this thread. It has a different error message but see if it helps.

    Read a bit into the thread.

    Some users in Win 7 put those in multiple folders which helped.

    I went through this myself a few months ago, in about 20 minutes I had the problem solved and was doing whatever it was I needed SBuilder for so I didn't attach a lot of importance to remembering what I did to fix it. I have a vague recollection of what I did though, here goes:

    It seems SBuilder first complained about COMDLG32.OCX. I found a copy of that on the net, and if I recall correctly it needed to be in the "SysWOW64" folder rather than system32. You have to either register the .ocx with a dos command or IIRC rebooting the computer will register it also. The site I got the files from was an MS sponsored site and I remember the .ocx files came with some additional file that took care of registering when you double-clicked it. It wasn't a batch file but something similar. I believe I found that site by googling "Component 'COMDLG32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered", but I couldn't tell you the name of it or the address now.

    After that it seems SBuilder complained about yet another missing file, I can't remember the name, but I found a copy of that one too from the same site and dropped it into SysWOW64. Eventually I must have given it everything it needed because I can start SBuilder without problems at this moment.

    I would try copying or moving COMDLG32.OCX into the SysWOW64 folder, rebooting the computer, and then try starting SBuilder again. I do not have a copy of COMDLG32.OCX in my system32 folder incidentally, only the SysWOW64 folder, so providing you're using a 64 bit operating system I'm fairly confident that that's where it needs to be.

    Mr. Robinson your memory was spot on. Thank You.

    I had downloaded the, "comdlg32.ocx" file before, I cut and pasted the file in the,"SysWOW64" folder. I started "SBuilder" without rebooting, and now everything seems to be working the way it should.

    Spoke to soon, now getting runtine error 339 when trying to open new airfield.

    Just my two cents....I have the COMDLG32.OCX file located in System 32. Been using SBuilder for some time now with no problems.

    Apparently both the "comdlg32.ocx" and the "TABCTL32.OCX" files, have to be in the "SysWOW64", folder. After a night's sleep I put the "TABCTL32.OCX", file in the SysWOE64", folder.
    SBuilder is working right now.

    Well I'm glad to hear you got it sorted one way or another.
