    Antivirus is disabled.

    If ActiveX is blocked for security reasons. Were would I check Windows settings for that.

    I would not think windows is capable of blocking individual ActiveX object.
    It does not block other objects from being created, the objects bellow are working just fine.
    Scripting.Dictionary
    Scripting.FileSystemObject
    WScript.Shell

    In our company we have seen problems with some ActiveX components (registration) in dependency if you install the ActiveX component as 'admin' or 'administrator'.

    Take a look at this Stack Overflow thread.

    Thanks a lot for this pointer.

    turned out that both syswow64\wscript.exe and system32\wscript.exe are 32-bit engines on my system. they both about 138kB
    when i explicitly call them
    >>syswow64\wscript.exe tester.vbs
    or
    >>system32\wscript.exe tester.vbs

    in the task manager they show up as *32 process - so they are both 32-bit

    I searched and found wscript.exe about 165kB elsewhere. so that is 64-bit version.
    and when i call that explicitly
    >>blah\wscript.exe tester.vbs
    it shows up w-o *32 - 64 bit process
    and then it works.

    so dMCScripting.dll from 16.2 release that is being called when 'dmcScripting.Converter' gets created is obviously 64-bit.
    and needs 64-bit wscript.exe engine to be recognized.

    So I am good now. it works.
    thanks

    If you were double clicking the .vbs file, how was it running the 32 bit version of wscript?

    To help other windows 7 64-bit users, can you post exactly where the 64-bit wscript.exe resides?
