Hi,

After the running, the update for Microsoft Visual Basic I ended up with an error message while working in a project. The error message does not specific any information about the error and why it happened. The error says there is an ‘automation error or unspecified error’. How do I correct this error? Please help. Thanks.

Your problem can be solved by registering a system file in your system. You have to re-register “Microsoft Windows Common Controls 6.0” components to correct this error.

  1. Start Command Prompt with administrative privilege. Right-click on Command Prompt, select “Run as administrator”.
  2. Now, run the following command according to your system:
    For 32-bit OS: regsvr32 “c:windowssystem32mscomctl.ocx”
    For 64-bit OS: regsvr32 “c:windowssyswow64mscomctl.ocx”
  3. A success message will appear saying that the files are registered successfully. Click “OK”

Now, your problem should disappear.
