There are two seperate downloads / installers for Windows Script 5.6. One is
for Windows 9x platform, and the other is for NT platforms. Here is the
correct one.

Tnx for your reply. But like I told before when I install that version i get
an error with:

error registering the OCX c:\windows\system32\jscript.dll

My question still is the same. How do i make sure that jscript.dll gets
registered?

anton.

Anton,

Are you able to register the DLL manually from Start/Run? (regsvr32
jscript.dll). In case of any faults, regsvr32 throws an error that would
help in diagnosis.

I have tried it with the following return code:

Can you do something with it?

Anton,

There are five other DLLs whose Imports are made by Jscript.dll. May be
running a SFC /Scannow, and followed by a regsvr32 jscript.dll would help?

Default Problem installing Windows script 5.6

This problem seems to be related to a registry key permissions problem.
Some users have reported that the problem is fixed after giving full
permissions to the appropriate users/accounts and then registering the
offending dll's.

I tried it without success. My attempts to fix the key permissions
failed. It appeared that I did gain some permission but couldn't
establish full permission to all keys/subkeys.

To back up a little, in my case I'm having trouble with vbscript.dll
and jscript.dll. (Windows XP Pro SP2 - Symptoms a javascript
errors, no search companion, inability to register dll's, failed
install of Windows ScriptHost, and Windows XP Repair worked but gave a
bazaar error message and did not fix my problem.)

brand dub has claimed to have found a solution though I had trouble
following it.

Other users have had success using different user accounts. This still
goes back to a permissions issue. I was able to register my dll's in
safe mode before but even that is no longer possible. It seems that
none of my user accounts have access to these registry keys.

If I find a solution, I'll post back.

====================================

Sorry I couldn't help you HK. When you use your account in safe mode it creates a secondary 'USER(HK)/Computer name' account so it won't affect your regular logon account.

When you say "none of my user accounts have access to these registry keys." Do you mean there are no user accounts on the computer with administrative rights or that the permissions changes won't stick? If you can, open user accounts from control panel and change account type.
If this won't work try kelly's Change Registered Owner and Organization (line 7 right side)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm


I just bought new hard drives and reinstalled XP Home. (I just wanted a clean slate) so I can show you what the default permissions are if you need them.


http://www.pcbanter.net/images/icons/icon1.gifSee this first;
Several dialog boxes are blank
support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831430



Assuming you are using an "administrator" account
1.open regedit (start/run type regedit enter)
-locate this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\
2.right click on it and select permissions
-add all users ('users' as in people who actually use the computer) to the permissions
3.click on advanced and select "replace permissions on all child ... "
-press OK and it will propagate proper permissions to all keys under classes. One-click the title bar and Press F5 to refresh the registry. Close Regedit.
4.StartRuntype in these regsvr commands.

regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 vbscript.dll

and if needed for search assistant
regsvr32 %windir%\srchasst\srchui.dll

then you should be in luck.


Someone had this to say about the issue:
"seems something while installing/uninstalling corrupts the registry entries, and windows restores them only for the user that does the install/uninstall...
this is also a known bug when using widgets with Windowblinds, corrupting those registry keys on boot."

A Further Note to most others...
You know...I learned something today....It helps to find a solution when you can narrow the problems and the recent changes. What I really learned from this is your computer is not a toy and Microsoft doesn't care too much when you corrupt their OS with broken programs that offer 'neat stuff n junk'. When you're on Limewire all day downloading corrupted files and installing cracks from FTP sites it's hard to identify the culprit. Would you take a "Free Twinkie" or buy a "new car" from some scragley cracked-out hobo in a shadowy alley in Detroit? Probably not because you'd never be in a shadowy alley in Detroit.
The End.

(line 7 right side)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm


Perhaps that script from kelly's-korner works but I checked it over and
didn't feel comfortable running it on a machine that is currently
functioning. I decided to try something else after reading your post
and, as you'll see further down, I did fix my problem.

Before I go further here, I should mention that before coming up with
the solution I have posted here, I had my Search Assistant and VBScript
functioning. What was not working was Windows Script Host reinstall
and/or regsvr32 jscript.dll.

Coming back to your question, my user accounts do have administrator
rights. The problem is that some keys (in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT) will not
even allow their rights to be changed. Here are some of the "offending
keys" (see note further on to tell you how to find all the "offending
keys"):

JavaScript
JavaScript1.1
JavaScript1.2
JavaScript1.3
LiveScript Author
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash
VBScript
VBScript Author

I was able to change all my offending keys' permissions to allow full
access on the necessary user accounts. The procedure I used was not as
easy as what I see most people posting. It went something like this:

(1) Start Run Regedit [Enter]
(2) Locate the "offending" key
(3) Right Click Permissions
(4) Advanced Button
(5) Owner Tab
(6) Select your current user account (assuming you have administrator's
rights) and Click Apply to change ownership.
(7) Click OK
(8) Click on Advanced Button Again
(9) Permissions Tab
(10) Click/Check "Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply
to child objects. Include these with entries explicitly defined here."
(11) Click Apply (Note: the results here will depend on the parent
permissions. You may need to change your parent permissions to make
this work. That is outside the scope of my explanation.)
(12) Click OK

This changes one key at a time. You will need to press F5 to refresh
screen. Generally this will make some subkeys available, which will
need to their permissions changed also. Attempting to apply changes to
child keys will always bring error messages and no results.

To find all the "offending keys", I used my down arrow key to scroll
through all the classes listed in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. When you come
upon a key that you do not have permission to see, you will get a modal
popup warning.

After granting proper permissions on all these "offending keys"
jscript.dll registered fine for me.

In truth, I think I may have arrived at the same solution you did. But
since my case was slightly different it involved keys in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.

I may also mention that the problem seemed to be associated with one or
more of the following events:

Uninstalling McAffee Antivirus
Installing McAffee Internet Security 7
Installing WindowBlinds
Uninstalling WindowBlinds
Uninstalling McAffee Internet Security 7 (because my subscription
showed to be out of date, even when it was not.)

One of the systems of this problem was that I could not reinstall
McAffee IS 7 because of script errors.

May I mention again for reference of others having the same issue, it
will not help to do an XP Repair. My problem persisted after an XP
Repair.

Thanks, but I don't need this anymore. Also, I probably have my
permissions set different than default but I don't care about security
because of the environment this computer is used in. Full permissions
to all users should not hurt anything.

I'm glad you found your solution Harlan.

Before attacking my registry permissions, I used a program to help find offending keys (faster) in HKCR like you did, although I used it just to be able to use XP repair and it only affected CD and DVD keys but the app may of helped me out more than I thought...

I take what you were trying to say was you tried to change the 'Hive' permissions and its subkeys with no avail, I had some issues doing that from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes
until I added users and changed their permissions and selected "Inherit from parent keys" (but for the hive and subkeys). Kind of mirrors your approach and is also what other people are now doing.

(note: In regeditHKCR or HKLM\software\classes
[subkeys][right click] permissionsadvanced('permissions' and 'audit' tabs)
The default checks (for "inherit from parent/child" etc) are both "Inherit from parent the permission...")

I also added myself into the Owner group from HKLM..classes - which by the way, I mentioned in the original post to you but was lost because my dog "ate it" by hitting F5 before I could send it. Was a really shame because it did take me a while to backtrack, collect research of all the things I did. Sorry you didn't get the good, thorough version which would have saved you some time.

So the problem we had was the same but it's symptoms were different. I'm glad you found a different solution which is great considering the rising number of people with this murky issue.

Funny how this same problem posted by so many has such character changes in its symptoms. For some Windows media player won't work or flash on the net won't work but will with the OS GUI, or, not at all. I'd appreciate anyone with this issue to post their symptoms and issues about it.

I am currently trying to help others with this same problem so if possible please note what application un/installs or application changes you've made.

I was having problems with NortonAntivirus around that time and also found "Iexplorer.exe", a malicious application in my i386 folder. (Note the 'r', its a combo name of Iexplore.exe and Explorer.exe)No one has heard of it other than me though, apparently.
