Installation Error 2739 on Vista

I was installing a new program on my Vista machine and received the following error message.
Installer Error 2739
I did a bit of a search and found that the problem was due to either VBScript.dll and/or JScript.dll not being registered.
The following are the steps needed to register them
  1. Open a Command Prompt with Elevated Administrative Privileges
  2. Type the following to change the correct directory
    1. For 32 bit Vista
      • c:
      • cd \windows\system32
    2. For 64 bit Vista
      • c:
      • cd \windows\syswow64
  3. Type regsvr32 jscript.dll
  4. Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll
You will receive the following messages if successfully registered.
RegSrv32 jscript.dll Success
RegSrv32 vbscript.dll Success
If you received the following error messages.
RegSrv32 jscript.dll Error
RegSrv32 vbscript.dll Error
It is because the command prompt in Step 1 was not run with elevated administrative privileges.  To do this the easiest way is
  1. Click Start, All Programs, Accessories
  2. Right click on the Command Prompt and select Run as an Administrator
  3. Authenticate
When you have successfully registered the DLLs you should have no problems re-running the installation and having installing it correctly.

Thanks for sharing. If you have problems with dll files, the best way to fix it is this website http://fix4dll.com/jscript_dll. Just download the file you need and add it to the system folder.
