Hi Infragistics team,
In some old application of use we use the NetAdvantage 2005 Volume 1 controls (especially the SSCheck component). Long time, no one touched this application and no one really news how to compile it. I was pretty glad to found the old installation cd of the NetAdvantage components and the setup run successfully through it. But unfortunately the error does not disappear. I restarted the pc a few times, repaired the installation, nothing helps. If I try to open the form in vb6, always the error occurs. Any good ideas what to do?
If you are using a 64 bit operating system, it is likely that the following thread will help you:https://www.infragistics.com/community/forums/f/retired-products-and-controls/52530/16-bit-installer-for-designer-widgets-in-win-7-64bit
If you are not using a 64 bit operating system, please provide more details including the environment that you are using.
I reproduce all steps mention in the post you shared, but doesn’t change a thing.
As far as I understand, there is no problem with a corrupted installation, there is some kind of licensing issue. If you open a Form uses the SSCheck control, the following error is thrown:
“Line 171: Cannot load control SSCheck1; license not found.”
Is there any license file missing or a registration outstanding? Can I manually relicense the components? Can I copy and old installation and it will work?
By the way, I’m using Windows 10 x64
The installers were never tested on a 64 bit operating system as that was first done in 2006 and the installer is older. It is possible that the the registry keys are written in the wrong location and not found because of the Wow6432Node. If you run the installer on a 32 bit XP VM and copy over the relevant registry entries as well as the assemblies and manually register the assemblies with regsvr32 it is likely that it will resolve the licensing issue.
Is there any kind of full list for all registry keys? Or any limitations for the search? Because searching the whole registry for “infragistics” or “sherdian” and copy all keys will take much time. And I’m even not sure to catch all necessary keys!
Which assemblies to I need to register manually? Only the assemblies in the install folder? Or are they any other assemblies on other paths like Windows, System, System32, SysWOW64?
These products have been retired for over ten years and there is no support for them anymore. We don't have these registry settings listed anywhere and the best way to find what changes would be to watch the registry for changes when installing on an XP VM so that you can see exactly what has changed.
As far as the assemblies that you need to register manually, you would need to register the ones that you use. If you aren't using an assembly, then not registering it will not impact you. As far as where these assemblies are, I assume they are in an install folder though I am not certain.
