17.5.32 Class not registered error message

When pc/MRP needs to use a class library .DLL or .OCX file, the operating system will first look in the registry, if it finds an entry in the registry pointing to where the .DLL or .OCX file is located and that file does not exist, the operating system will throw an error message.    If it does not find an entry in the registry it will look in pc/MRP’s home directory.   If it does not find the .DLL or .OCX file there, it will look in the system folders.   If it does not find it in the system folders, it will throw an error message.

pc/MRP versions 7.50 and higher use the following DLL files, VFP6R.DLL and VFP6RENU.DLL

pc/MRP versions 7.52 and higher use the following .OCX files, MSCOMCT2.OCX  (Date Picker), CTSCTSCHEDULE.OCX, TIME LINE OCX (MRP Timeline Report), CTTABS.OCX, CTTIPS.OCX

pc/MRP version 7.83 added MSCCOMCTL.OCX ( Tree View for Corporate Reporting)

To fix the problem you could do the following.   (1) Copy the missing file into the directory the registry indicates it should be in.  (2) Copy the missing file into the System32 folder or the System folder (Win 98 and 98).   (3)  Open up Explorer, find the file, leave the Explorer window open, Click on the Start button, Select Run and register it by typing in REGSVR32 and drag and drop the file from explorer into the run command line one space after the word REGSVR32.   Be aware if you move this file be aware your computer may not be able to find it.   If you are going to delete some of the registry entries, make a backup of the registry by selecting export and giving it a name to import it back in from if necessary.

Other cures might include disabling a virus checker that is not allowing un-registered DLLs to run or an operating system doing the same.
