Error Saving File Message

Norm Ivey

Recommended Posts

I copied my software from one computer to another (write sequences on one; play on another). This has worked fine in the past. When I try to save on the second computer I get this error message:

Error saving file...do you want to try to save to another name?

Detail: Automation error

The specified module could not be found.

I have already tried updating the software from LOR. I have 2.5.2.

Everything works as it should on the original computer. Any ideas?

Hmmm... "automation error" typically means that something is required but isn't installed, or can't be accessed, or something like that. When saving a sequence, we use a Microsoft thing called "MSXML". Perhaps that's not installed.

Specifically, we use MSXML 4. You can download the MSXML 4 installer from the following page on Microsoft's website:


I would suggest downloading that installer, then closing all of your running programs, especially LOR programs, and trying to install it.

I did a google on this error. I worked through a couple of false leads, but this very simple response seemed to fix it--just in case someone else hits the same snag.

[i]Can you try using the following command from 'Run'

regsvr32 scrrun.dll
