OLE error code 0x80040154 in VFP9

Post by ferminfdez » 17 Nov 2012, 17:06


I had an application in Visual Foxpro 9 using CadviewX from 2006. Now, I have buyed version 8 and after installing and registering it, I get the message OLE error code 0x80040154: Unknown COM status code.
Same error in demo with Word included in package. After installing and getting error, I have register manually the OCX using cmd as administrator. I get same error.
I am working in Windows Professional 64.

What I am doing wrong?

Hello Fermin.
The described error can take place because of problems with FM20.DLL. This library contains Microsoft Forms 2.0 Controls and can be used with Microsoft Office and its Visual Basic for applications environment.
Please make sure the DLL is present in SysWOW64 folder and registered. The folder must contain also FM20ENU.DLL or an alternative dll unit if you have non English environment. Please make sure such dll is also present and registered. At last, try to copy FM20ENU.DLL if not present in SysWOW64 folder and register it.
