    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?

    I am getting the same error when trying to run a vbs script on a 64-bit XP machine. I tried changing the file to open with C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\wscript.exe instead of the one in the System32 folder. However, the script is still returning the same error. Where you ever able to solve your problem? If so what is the solution?

    I'm using the cmd.exe in SysWOW64 and then running a .NET application so it might be a little different.

    it is 2017 and has been over 9years since the last post on this thread.
    It is rather troublesome that I am still getting the same error and do not see any resolution to create activex object on windows 7 64-bit OS.

    i have dBpowerAMP Music Converter 16.2 installed on windows 7 64 bit OS.

    It works fine by itself.

    I am getting the same error as everyone in this thread, but 9 years later.

    this is a tester script:
    Wscript.echo "test dmcscripting"
    Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Set dMC = CreateObject("dMCScripting.Converter")

    errors on the last line.

    It would be absolutely thrilling to finally solve this issue once and for all after all these years.

    Try to uninstall dBpoweramp, full reboot of windows then reinstall.

    If you have any security software try to disable as a test before install, or run your script.

    uninstalled
    reboot
    disabled AVG
    installed
    another reboot
    run tester (same error)
    started Batch Converter
    run tester (same error)

    so it does not work
    Do you have any other advise?
