Microsoft Visual Basic: Component Not Correctly Registered

By James Hippolite, in , posted: 19-Dec-2008 21:22

I got this really wierd error message while I was reconstructing my Development Environment:

  • Microsoft Visual Basic
  • Component Not Correctly Registered

This occurred because I was uninstalling Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 and re-installing SQL Server 2005 for the purpose of completing some self-paced training kit labs.  As a result, I was no longer able to execute any Excel macros, even after reinstalling all the latest software.

The solution was fairly simple: download and install the Visual Basic Runtime 6.

Thank You for a plain and simple post. It fixed the problem after installing visual basic runtime 6. It is some time hard to find a acurate fix to an IT problem on time, and this on cannot be any simpler.

Welcome to my technical blog. 

Here, I attempt to distill the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer knowledge I have accumulated since first qualifying MCP in 1996.  This blog started on 13 September 2007 as an off-shoot from my mixed up personal blog.  But it took a shot in the arm from Scott Hanselman's talk at TechEd New Zealand 08 "32 Ways To Make Your Blog Suck Less".
