    Re: Getting an Error code '2738' while uninstalling apps on Windows 7

    now your getting the Error 2738 while uninstall the application.
    this type error mostly occurs at the time of install or uninstall the application.Mostly this error 2738 occurs in the operating system windows 7 and window vista.
    this type error also occurs when any register file is missing such as vbscript.dll.
    you can fix the such type of error.

    Fix the error 2738 while occuring at the time of uninstall the application

    --> download the "2738 official utility" and install it in your pc
    --> now launch it and press on "scan"
    --> now press on "repair" to repair the error 2738 in your pc.

    other method to fix the error 2738

    --> Go to "Start" and then "Accessories"
    --> now select "command prompt".now command prompt window open
    --> type "run as administrator" and give "enter"
    --> now type "cd C:\windows\system32" and give "enter"
    --> now type "regsvr32 vbscript.dll"

    now vbscript is registered in register edit and error 2738 will be eliminated.

    Re: Getting an Error code '2738' while uninstalling apps on Windows 7

    Hi,

    This is somewhat a known illness of all the Operating Systems from the Microsoft stable.

    The nagging error message which seems to be an internal Error 2337 is a common but frustrating error that appeares in all versions of Microsoft Windows.
    Two causes are thought to be responsible for the scenerio :
    A problem in Microsoft .NET Framework , or an improper installation media.
    To resolve the problem first try to reinstall the .NET Framework.
    If that fail to fix the issue, try to reinstall the software which created the problem of "Error 2738" , then uninstall the software from your machine.

    Possibly this will help.

    Thanks.

    Hi.
    Error 2738 is an error that means VBScript is not properly configured to run on your computer.
    Follow the below steps:

    >Fixing Error 2738 on Windows 7 64-bit:If you have a 64-bit operating system, you will need to follow these steps:
    Open a command line window as Administrator, which requires clicking Start typing cmd in the search box, then right-clicking on the cmd.exe program and choosing Run as Administrator. Next paste the following in the command line and hit enter.
    reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F 3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f
    That previous command removes the incorrect entry for VBScript support on 64-bit Windows 7. Next you need to make sure VBScript is properly registered by typing:
    c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    or simply regsvr32 vbscript.dll if you are already in the syswow64 directory.


    >Fixing Error 2738 on Windows 7 32-bit
    For a 32-bit operating system, the steps are similar, but slightly different:
    Open a command line window as Administrator, by clicking Start, typing cmd in the search box, then right-clicking on the cmd.exe program and choosing Run as Administrator. Next paste the following in the command line and hit enter.
    reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f
    That previous command removes the incorrect entry for VBScript support on 32-bit Windows 7. Next you need to make sure VBScript is properly registered by typing:
    c:\windows\system32\regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    or simply regsvr32 vbscript.dll if you are already in the syswow64 directory.

    After following these steps you should be able to uninstall your program without issue.

    Thank you.
