    Registering VBScript engine through Windows Vista

    It is not possible to access VBScript through my laptop running on Windows Vista as I keep getting the error code 2738. When I searched for a solution, I found I need to register VBScript Engine properly on the system. What are the procedures required for that?

    You need to unregister and register the vbscript.dll :
    look out for vbscript.dll in
    32 bit windows: %windir%/system32 (usually something like C:\windows\system32)
    64 bit Windows : %windir%/syswow64 (usually something like C:\windows\syswow64)
    Step 1. Verify that you have vbscript.dll in your Target directory as stated above
    Step 2. Run command prompt as administrator. ( Start > Accessories > right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator )
    Step 3. The command prompt should open to something like C:\Windows\system32 ( your path might be different, but you want the system32 folder underneath your windows directory. )
    Step 4. make sure to Unregister vbscript dll first:
    type everything that appears in the quotes on the command line, but you do not need to use quotes, you should see a message popup verifying that vbscript.dll unregistered correctly.
    32bit - type "regsvr32 /U %windir%/system32/vbscript.dll"
    64bit - type "regsvr32 /U %windir%/syswow64/vbscript.dll"
    Step 5. Now register vbscript.dll
    you should see a message about succuessful registration popup
    32bit - type "regsvr32 %windir%/system32/vbscript.dll"
    64bit - type "regsvr32 %windir%/syswow64/vbscript.dll" 6.) Rerun our installation and it should go through now.
