    Default ActiveX error 429

    I am trying to install a pretty obscure program in Linux : Lingualinks

    When installing this I get

    Run-time error: '429':
    ActiveX component can't be create object
    I have followed another thread and it suggested using winetricks

    The only activex components under wintricks are
    the Adobe Flash Player ActiveX and firefox plugins
    and
    MS ActiveX Control Pad

    Neither of these seem to be relevant.

    I copied the dll into system32 directory

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    As it appears this is software for Windows: SIL Publications: 9781556711237 (right?).

    You are running it under Wine? Unfortunately I have not the slightest idea what the problem is, but you should give a lot more information, to get useful help from someone. Please state version of OS, what you did, how you installed it, where you got stuck, what you would have expected to happen, any relevant system output wrapped in [code] tags ...

    Thanks for your response vodoo.

    Yes that is the program.
    Sorry for leaving out the obvious info

    OpenSuse 11.3 KDE (standard DVD installation)

    I inserted the cd into the drive and clicked the exe install file and ran it via wine.

    The installation runs through to what seems to be the end and then I get the above mentioned error

    The above error is the only output I get. Or at least that I know of.
    Where should I look?

    Thank you for assisting a newbie!

    You do know that all Windows programs will not run under wine?? In Windows ActiveX controls must be registered. This produces an interface definition in the Windows registry. So even if you do have the needed dll's the thing won't work unless the registry entries are there. The really big problem is that the error does not seem to indicate which ActiveX control is missing.

    If this is a must have program you may consider installing Windows in a Virtual Machine (VM) like VirtualBox.

    Does
    winetricks ie6
    help?

    If not, please attach a console log.

    Also, can you reproduce the problem with any of the individual apps at SIL Software Catalog:All SIL Software Titles ?
