Cadzow 2000 Startup Errors — ActiveX Can't Create Object
When launching Cadzow 2000, you may receive the following error:
- ActiveX component can't create object; or
- STOP! There has been an error writing to the data file. You might be experiencing a network or data problem. Please exit Cadzow.
The solution is to re-register DAO350.DLL. This file has been observed to deregister on Windows 98 systems and to not register properly on Windows 2000 systems. (The Windows 2000 problem is caused by the fact that Windows 2000 ships with DAO350.DLL and when installing the Access 97 Runtime, which uses the Microsoft ACME Setup Engine, the file is deregistered and Setup fails to register it again because the file already exists.)
To re-register the file:
- Use Windows Explorer to browse to \CADZOW\SUCCESS7\BIN.
- If using Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP/2003, double-click FIXDLLS.BAT (or FIXDLLS).
If using Windows Vista, right-click FIXDLLS.BAT (or FIXDLLS) and choose Run as Administrator. Accept the warning.
- You should then receive:
You can also issue the following command at a prompt:
REGSVR32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\dao350.dll"
or (on Windows 2000/XP and above):
REGSVR32 "%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\DAO\dao350.dll"
On Windows Vista/2008, you must open the command prompt in Administrator mode before running this command, or you will receive error code 0x8002801C. To do this, click Start, Run, type CMD, then press Ctrl-Shift-Enter. Accept the UAC warning. The command prompt should show Administrator across the top of the window.
