visual studio 2010 and 2008 ide on windows 7 64 bit seems to be blocked from reading the registry RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using:
    1. visual studio 2008 and visual studio 2010
    2. windows 7 ultimate
    3. 64 bit gateway
    4. I am using a third party control that has been registered using regsvr32
    5. its wrapper was created with 64 bit aximp
    6. The code runs but  in design mode nothing shows:
    Warning 1 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG))  0 0 

    7.I used regedit and tried to give all the user's permission to read the registry entry for the item - didn't work.

    8. The same code and situation works fine in windows vista home: which means  visual studio cannot read the registry on the windows 7 pc

    What do I need to do

  • use process monitor to see where the code is looking for the ActiveX's class ID, and where regsvr32 is writing the ActiveX's class ID. 

    If those do not match, you probably want to visit a Visual Studio IDE forum to see how do you setup the ActiveX registration during a build process.

    If you want to register the ActiveX manually independent of the build process, visit the Windows SDK forum.
