    Thanks for the response. Are you planning on moving that forward?

    FYI: C* program running in WOW64 cmd.exe works fine on a Vista 64 bit machine.

    Unfortunately is make debugging as fun as it was in the dos days, but at least it will run.

    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?

    so it does not work
    Just thought I'd add that I'm running R16.3 Beta 4 on a Windows 10 Pro (version 1703) 64-bit PC and the test script works fine, so it does work.

    This suggests either a problem with your PC or running R16.2 on a Windows 7 64-bit PC.

    The fact that it works on Windows 10 Pro does not suggest anything to me.

    I tried it on 2 entirely different hardwares [desktop(home.jpg) and laptop(wrk.jpg)] both 64-bit windows 7.
    both error on the same line trying to create object.

    It only suggests to me that even though it is fully functional on 64-bit win 7 machine it does not to instantiate dMCScripting.Converter object.
    Why that is? I do not know.
    Probably dll is not registered correctly by the installation package.
    i tried to reregister dll with regsvr32.
    it did not change anything.
    perhaps windows 7 scripting engine does not see this object for whatever reason.

    Does anybody have any smart ideas how to fix this situation. other that switch to windows 10(that is not an option).

    thanks

    ActiveX has in the past been used as an exploit by malware writers. I wonder if it's being blocked for security reasons. I would check Windows and/or antivirus settings.

    Could it be a permissions issue i.e. user does not have FULL administrator privileges?

    It suggests that given certain conditions it IS working, rather than the previous posts that allude to it not working.

    What we need to do now, is work out why it is not working on the Windows 7 64-bit OS.
