As we all know, Windows is the most popular operating system, mainly used on PC. But we all face many types of errors when using the system or the installation process. Here we found one of the most common errors, namely “Fix Runtime Error 429 ActiveX Component Can’t Create Object”. This error occurs in almost all versions of Windows such as XP, 7, 8 and 10. You must first find the reason for this error. Then you must correct it accordingly.

Error 429 ActiveX

Register the program

This error may also occur because the ActiveX or.NET COM DLL being accessed is not registered on the system.

Here is how to register the DLL:

  • Install the Microsoft.NET framework if it is not installed.
  • Close all open applications and delete the files from the %TEMP% folder. To easily access this folder, open the command prompt and type Enter after each line:
    CD %TEMP
    DEL *.* /S
  • Get the latest version of the IDAutomation barcode product used.
  • Reinstall the component package. The DLL should save it automatically.
  • If problems persist, try the manual process below.

To manually register the DLL, proceed as follows:

Run the command window as administrator. You will usually find them under Start – Programs – Programs – Accessories.
Change the directory where the DLL is located; this is usually the Windows system directory. On 64-bit systems, the DLL can be located in Windows\syswow64.

At the command prompt, type the following:
REGSVR32 file.dll
where file.dll is the name of the DLL to record.

If a DllRegisterServer entry point DLL error is received after running regsvr32, the DLL must be registered with RegAsm.exe instead. Make sure the.NET framework is installed and type the following at the . command prompt

For.NET Framework 2.0-3.5:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegAsm.exe /codebase /tlb file.dll

For.NET Framework 4:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe /codebase /tlb file.dll
where file.dll is the name of the DLL to save and C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\* is the path to the RegAsm.exe file.

Reinstall MS Office

Reinstall the MS Office software.

Uninstall the existing version of the software and try reinstalling it from the original floppy disk. This is a Microsoft recommendation. Make sure it works as an administrator.
