class not registered, what does it mean?

by rhodeye / December 13, 2006 12:47 PM PST

When I try to view some streamers or trailers a message sometimes pops up saying- class not registered. What does that mean? Is there a way I can get through that to view the video streamer? Thank you.

In my opinion, for anyone to attempt an answer . .

you would have to give all the details of what you're doing, 1) where, 2) software being used, and 3) the full details of what the error message is. For instance whether a browser page error or something else. . .:

1. One or more of the twelve files listed in the article [Q281679] may be missing, damaged, or unregistered. The files Dispex.dll (IE6SP1v5.6.0.6626); Vbscript.dll; Scrrun.dll; Jscript.dll; Olepro32.dll; Vbscript.dll; Rsabase.dll; Msscript.ocx; Cachevu.dll; and Iepeers.dll should probably be checked also. Note that the last two or three are not default Win98 files and may not be on your system -- as others perhaps. If one is not, you'll simply get an error that the file name is invalid -- don't worry about it. Therefore, download and use "IEFix" - a general purpose fix for Internet Explorer (Win 98/ME/2000/XP), which performs certain actions explained at the Web site, among which it:

a. Registers Urlmon.dll, Mshtml.dll, Actxprxy.dll, Oleaut32.dll, Shell32.dll, Shdocvw.dll, [Q281679].

b. Refreshes Internet Explorer using IE.INF method. Note:

? "Unable to Install Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP (Q304872)"

? "How to Reinstall or Repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP (Q318378)"

c. Initiates "SFC /Scannow" (Win2K&XP), [Q310747].

2. The article [Q249873] explains the Regsvr32 tool (Regsvr32.exe) used to register and unregistered object linking and embedding (OLE) controls such as dynamic-link library (DLL) or ActiveX Controls (OCX) files that are self-registered. The article provides an error message list and describes possible causes. If the registration of a control is unsuccessful or you need developer information about troubleshooting unsuccessful OLE control registration attempts, see "Q140346 - Possible Reasons for OLE Control Registration Failure".

a. When browsing a Web page, you may receive an error message similar to one of the following and could be caused if the URLMON.DLL file is not registered [Q306831]:

An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Line: line
Char: character
Error: Class not registered

b. Or on the Status Bar, you may note the following information:

Done, but with error on page

Note: And if you double-click the Status Bar message and then click Show Details, the above message may be rendered.

Hopefully after you reply with the complete details somebody will have an idea of what to help you with.

reinstall the applications that should show the streaming video (like Windows Mediaplayer or Real Player). Something might be wrong with them. In fact, do you have the right player installed?
