After installing Quickmap, you can get this error:

Error 429: ActiveX component can’t create object. This is indicative of a problem with MDAC

To fix this, click Start -> Run and enter the information contained in Step 1 below and push ENTER.  When complete you should be told that the registration has been successful and click OK. Repeat for Steps 2,3 and 4.   

  1. regsvr32 scrrun.dll
  2. regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.dll”
  3. regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO360.dll”
  4. regsvr32 “C:\Windows\System32\Atl.dll”
  5. regsvr32 “C:\QMap\QControl.OCX”

This process can also be run from a command line.

Under Vista and Windows 7, these registration commands need to be run from an “elevated command prompt”.  To do this find cmd.exe (normally located in C:\Windows\System32\ folder), right click and select “Run as Administrator”.  Enter the registration commands in the resulting command box.

For 64 bit PC’s the files are in C:\Program Files (x86)\ therefore the instructions should be:

  • Under Vista and Windows 7 these registration commands need to be run from an “elevated command prompt”
  • To do this find cmd.exe (normally located in C:\Windows\System32\ folder), right click and select “Run as Administrator”

❗ Note: Windows and QuickMap can actually be installed into any folder so you  will need to modify the paths accordingly.

❗ Note: If you get the error message  “The specified module could not be found.”, it means either the file name has been entered incorrectly or the file does not exist.
