    Wine , activeX component registering error (error 429)

    Hi all,
    I have been trying to install a VB application into linux
    through wine. The application almost installs but it says tha it
    cannot register the DLL - scrrun.dll . I added the scrrun.dll and regv32 .exe from the system32 of windows into linux. Then also I get the same error . When I ignore the error I get another error atlast that installation process cannot register activeX component.
    Is the error because of permissions? I tried the installation as Root. I have windows installed on the same computer. Should I try the installation process with a fresh harddisk with Ubuntu,Wine installed?

    Try installing Windows Script Host

    What version of wine?
    Which app is this?
    Is a demo available?

    the advice you got from Fuad may be useful -- sometimes winetricks
    can help, if you know what you're missing. In particular, scrrun.dll
    is part of windows scripting, so try installing that with

    sh winetricks vcrun6 wsh56

    You might need to do something like 'sudo apt-get install cabextract' first.

    Best place for advice is WineHQ Forums Index
    When you post there, be sure to say what vb6 app
    you're running, what version of linux and wine you're
    using, and what exact error message you're seeing.

    If you're not using wine-1.1.33, you may want to upgrade,
    it's much better than 1.0.
