Hi,

I know this sounds like a kind of antiquated problem, but it is quite real here. We use e-Work 6.6.4, and so far the Outlook client/add-in has worked quite well. Also in Office 2003 and 2007.

Now, if we upgrade a machine from XP to Vista, and this machine already runs Office 2007 with the e-Work add-in installed, it continues to work just fine.

But if I do a clean and fresh Vista installation, install Office 2007, and then try to install the 6.6.1 Outlook add-in, it kindly informs me that I cannot do this on Vista.

I have done all sorts of tricks to get it to work. Copied the C:\Program Files\Metastorm e-Work folder from another machine, updated the registry with several hives, and also added the same PATH and eWork environment variables that exists on a machine that works.

The e-Work folder shows up alright in Outlook 2007, but when I select it I keep getting an error saying:

ActiveX component can't create object
Error : 429
Description : ActiveX component can't create object
Location : UClientList.UserControl_Initialize
Source : eClientList
LastDllError : 0

I tried doing a regsvr32 with both the eOutlook.dll and eAddinRemove.dll, but that also didn't help.

Upgrading to 7.6 is not likely to happen before sometime next year, and I would hate to have to reinstall XP, Office, e-Work add-in and then upgrade to Vista to get it to work.

Any suggestions?

Best regards, Jan.

Try doing a regsvr32 on eClientComps.ocx, it might work

Hi,

I now tried registering all DLL's and OCX's inside C:\Program Files\Metastorm e-Work. I still does not work, but at least the errors changed...

Outlook now gives me about eight warnings saying:
DAX Error: Class is not registered

It is then followed by two more warning windows saying:

Quote:
Automation error
Error : -2147418113
Description : Automation error
Location : UClientList.UserControl_Initialize
Source : eClientCompsWrap6
LastDllError : 0


and

Quote:
Object variable or With block variable not set
Error : 91
Description : Object variable or With block variable not set
Location : UClientList.InitialiseClient
Source : eClientList
LastDllError : 0


It then shows the client, apparantly divided into three frames, each with a header. But I now see the everso familiar button picture on top. Outlook no longer crashes.

Could it be some sort of scripting engine that is different?

Best regards, Jan

In the SDK docs, there's a SDK Reditribution doc that explains whats required to install a client based on the client comps. It might show something you've missed
