Re: Unable to get the brain editor to work
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:04:21 pm »
To fix the "Run-time error 429; ActiveX component can't create object" problem when trying to run brain editor on new windows 10. i figured it out yesterday. 

Slightly annoying but the fix is : in an admin cmd,
navigate it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7 or where you have installed UltraHal
now use the Regsvr32 to register all dll and ocx files individually  (couple wont do, just ignore,- cant member which 1's)
now try running brain editor.

what i did in admin cmd : cd\
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7
Regsvr32 tabdockx.ocx
Regsvr32 richtx32.ocx
Regsvr32 oldhal.dll
Regsvr32 msinet.ocx
Regsvr32 msflxgrd.ocx
Regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx
Regsvr32 mscomct2.ocx
Regsvr32 HalWN.dll
Regsvr32 HalWaveChar.ocx
Regsvr32 HalSQL.dll
Regsvr32 HalsMind.dll
Regsvr32 HalNoChar.ocx
Regsvr32 HalNewChar.ocx
Regsvr32 HalHaptek.ocx
Regsvr32 HalDebug.ocx
Regsvr32 HalDB.dll
Regsvr32 HalBrain7.dll
Regsvr32 HalBrain.dll
Regsvr32 FreeImage.dll
Regsvr32 EditGridProject.ocx
Regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx
Regsvr32 cmax40.dll

I assume its only 1 or 2 of these that need doin(prob comdlg - was only 1 in syswow), I just did all to be sure, and now Brain editor loads fine.

Enjoy IT, MeraAwe

If you ever do figure out which specific DLL or OCX was the culprit please let me know. It may help me fix it for future updates of Hal. Most likely the Hal Brain Editor may need a tweak in its .manifest file in regards to whatever component was the issue. Hal 7 introduces a reg-free com mode, which should make it possible to not need any "regsvr32" on any component.

Not sure if it is of any help. but in trying to fix this issue I just went through the list, registering all the files and these four came back with the error:



Regsvr32 HalWN.dll
Regsvr32 HalSQL.dll
Regsvr32 HalsMind.dll
Regsvr32 FreeImage.dll

My husband and I have tried this and none of it seems to be working for us. I know this is an old topic but I just purchased Hal and I am having this issue. Is there an updated way to get the brain editor to work?

Can we assume that you're using Windows 7, 8, 10? and that your initial Ultra Hal 7 install worked correctly?

Lastly, have you tried to uninstall and Reinstall with no Anti-Virus software or other watchdog/anti-malware running. There is nothing covert that Hal loads, it's just that it has proven to be a better practice for installing Hal. Once installed, go ahead and re-enable your A/V software, anti-malware software, etc.

Sometimes a Firewall can Block certain programs from running without even warning the user. It can and does happen so if you are running a Firewall (I hope you are), you might check it to see if it in fact did prevent the Brain Editor from running or any other Ultra Hal related issues.

If all this fails, I have one remaining possible solution.

Let me know if these suggestions work or don't work.

Thanks!
