Error saving sequence; ActiveX component can't create object

Recommended Posts

In the Sequence Editor, if you try to save a sequence and get an error saying "ActiveX component can't create object", this typically means that one of your standard Windows components is not properly registered.

To fix this, shut down all of your running programs (especially LOR programs), open up a command prompt (running with administrator privileges if appropriate for your system), and in it, type the following two lines:


cd c:\windows\system32
regsvr32 scrrun.dll


Please note the following:

  • There is a space between "cd" and "c:\windows\system32".
  • There is a space between "regsvr32" and "scrrun.dll".
  • There are no other spaces anywhere on either line.
  • The slashes in "c:\windows\system32" are backslashes ("\"), not forward slashes ("/").

After you type those lines, a message should pop up saying "DllRegisterServer in scrrun.dll succeeded." After that, you should be able to save your sequences.
