Trying to install OCX files
Posted on 2006-11-17
First let me preface by saying I am not a windows programmer - I have a programming background but it is in Unidata which is the database our business system runs on.
Several years ago a company wrote a couple of ocx applications to help interface our business system with a tax processing application. They also wrote an installer a .msi. This was all written and runs on a windows 98 system. I have upgraded the tax software to the latest version and it is now running on a windows XP system. I did not figure that these applications were going to work on the XP system but I figure it is worth a try since I am not qualified to rewrite new ones. When running the .msi - it starts the installation process and then I get the following error.
Error 1904. Module C:\Program Files\Vertex\utils\geo.ocx failed to register. HRESULT-2147024770. Contact your support personnel.
The basic stucture of the applications database has not changed so I have reason to believe that if these would 'register' they would work.
Any direction / advice is appreciated.
