ComboBox VBScript error

I have recently updated my computer to a 64 bit Windows 7 platform. I am now getting an error while using MathCad 14.0 M020 on spread sheets that have worked previously using combo boxes. The error is "Microsoft VBScript runtime error Line16 Error0 Object required: 'ComboBox'". And when I try to insert a Component-Scriptable Object, the Microsoft Forms* selections are not even available as on option. During the initial install of MathCad 14 the .NET Framework prerequisites were not installed from the CD. I have manually installed the .NET Framework 3.5 and the Microsoft Report Viewer which includes the Microsoft Forms. I also upgraded my MSXML 4.0 SP2 to MSXML SP3. I then uninstalled and reinstalled MathCad 14 and am still getting the same error. Has anyone came across this before?

I haven't come across this before, but you try contacting the Mathcad License and Install team directly.

That's wierd, but as Richard said there might be an issue with the 64 bit o[perating system. I have seen the problem a few times

I started experiencing problems with other programs and determined I had a registry error. I reformatted my machine, reinstalled the software and the problem went away.

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

There seems to be two threads going on this subject:Object required:'Combobox1'

It looks to me as though the MSForms 2.0 controls, including the Conbobox, and not compatible with the 64 bit OS.

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

I think so too because i've tried with different laptops all with the same OS, windows7 64 bit still the error occurs. Do you have idea on how to fix it? Thank you very much

Do you have idea on how to fix it?\

No, sorry. I'm still using XP.

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

i already figured it out. It requires the full version of MS office in order for the combo box to load. I already installed the full version and was able to run the combobox already.

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

Cheers for coming back with a solution.

Was you trying the component on a machine without a full version of MS?

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

And did you check the installation(s) of MS Office on both PC's, as suggested higher up in this thread?

It seems that you require a full installation of MsOffice in order for the combo-boxes to load...

 

Success!

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

Thanks LucMeekes

Actually here in our office there are 4 station and all of them have the same office,

2 of them have no problem, 2 of them can not open mathCad files with combo boxes...

 

I have seen somewhere MS net framework and MSXML4 dll files also needs to be updated but I have not checked them accurately yet

Re: ComboBox VBScript error

I changed my MS office from 64bit to 32bitversion ( mathCad 15 is a 32bit application) and problem solved

Thanks
