Problems with IceChat7 and Vista RC1
« on: November 11, 2006, 04:10:39 AM »
I have a problem with Vista RC1 and IceChat7 (same with 5.5). It's impossible to connect, the error-message is:
ERROR:ucServerList:Function:ConnectServer:False:0 Error Number:429 :ActiveX can't create object

Strange is: I had installed Vista before and had to reinstall because of a crash. In this installation first I had the same prob, but suddenly it worked.
mswinsck.ocx is installed in system32.
Can anybody help? I'am forced to use mirc and this causes headaches...

If the mswinsck.ocx file is on your system, check to see if it is the correct version.
Under the Help menu, go to Debug Items, and use Check DLL Versions, and make sure they match.

[11:45] --> C:\Windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx version: 6.0.89.88 : Installer Version is: 6.0.89.88
[11:45] --> C:\Windows\system32\mscomctl.ocx version = 6.0.88.62 : Installer Version is: 6.1.97.86
[11:45] --> C:\Windows\system32\msscript.ocx version = 1.0.0.5600 : Installer Version is: 1.0.0.4615
[11:45] --> C:\Windows\system32\msvbvm60.dll version = 6.0.97.92 : Installer Version is: 6.0.97.82

mswinsck.ocx matches, but all other don't

But i don't need any solution for vista any more. It's a ...... and I refused using it. Too many incompatibilities.

Well, I know it works fine for others, but I guess it just doesn't like your system.
At least your not lost, there are other cliens available.
Good luck

:) yes - but I'll rather use XP - because there is no better Client than IceChat. Most Mems in my clan are using it now. But still I've the Problem with 7 and so I'm using 5.5: It doesn't seem to be possible to HighLight free words. We have an "Alarm-Word" - oink - and I coluldn't find an option in 7 to HL ist with sound. Is there a soluution?

Sorry, I am not really sure what you mean, unless you want the highlight option, which is in the Color Options tab. Just click the 1st icon on the toolbar, and its the last option on the left.

And about the Vista problem, do you have admin rights on the machine? Because IceChat needs to create a Registry key to make the OCX file work with the program.

Thanks, I found it on Options/ Colors. And Yes, I have (had) admin rights. Funny is: As I first installed Vista IceChat didn't connect to any server - after 2 hours it DID! As I installed Vista a second time, because of a sys-prob, it doesn't connect any more. But as I said: Vista was not my cup of tea, I don't like it and I'm sure I'll not like it in future.
