    ActiveX component can't create object: 'dmcScripting.Converter'

    Error code: 800A01AD


    I'm running Vista x64 and I've unregistered the dll and reregistered, still no go.



    Any ideas?

    I'm running R13 and I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

    I quickly installed R13 on my 32 bit vista machine and it works fine there.

    Does the scripting not work with WMA files?

    get_AudioProperties returns an empty string
    get_ReadIDTagElementValue return an empty string for index 0
    ReadIDTag return empty element and value for index 0

    Or am I missing something?

    Do you have the WMA codec installed into dMC?

    What language are you using? Have you looked at the code examples?

    I've tried both vbscript using ReadIDTagElementValue

    For i = 0 To 10000
    Dim ElementValue
    ElementValue = dMC.ReadIDTagElementValue("C:\Users\FlowerdayJ\Mus ic\Steve Morse\Major Impacts\01 Derailleur.wma", i)
    If ElementValue = "" Then Exit For
    Call WshShell.Popup(ElementValue, , "Read Tag", 0)
    Next


    I've also tried C* using ReadIDTag and get the same results.

    Nothing ever returns from index 0.

    Ok a reboot got it reading the tags on my 32 vista machine. Still need to get it going on my 64 bit vista machine.


    Any ideas?

    I don't think scripting will work in 64 bit.

    If you mean DMCScripting, are there any plans to get it working?

    Try running your script, but prefacing it with "C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\wscript.exe". That way it uses the 32-bit script engine instead of the 64-bit.

    I don't want to use script. I prefer C* and it doesn't work their either.

    Probably because the libraries in the system are 64-bit and want 64-bit objects, but the dMC scripting object is 32-bit and so cannot create it.

    I just suggested running with the command-line above to see if the problem was it was wanting a 64-bit COM object.

    The code for scripting is still compiled in VC++ v6, which cannot compile 64 bit.
