    Troubleshooting
    JCapper was developed using Visual Basic 6.0 and relies on component tools provided by Microsoft.

    Not all versions of Windows are consistent from build to build. It is possible that one or more dependency files (dll or ocx ) are missing from the particular version of the Windows operating system present on your machine. When this is the case, error messages can result when running different modules within JCapper. The following error messages have been reported by some users along with the solution that fixed the problem.

    • Error Description: Compatible MDAC Version not Detected. Happens When: Whenever I click the Install JCapper button on the Installer. Instead of performing the install, the Installer gives me the error message. Cause: The version of MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Componenets) on your system does not support the Microsoft Jet Ole 4.0 Database Engine used by JCapper. More info: To learn more about MDAC, click here. Solution: Download and install the Jet 4.0 OLEDB Database Engine.


    • Error Number: 430 Description: Class does not support Automation or does not support expected interface. Happens When: Whenever I try to run the Installer Program (file name: JCapper_Install.exe.) Instead of performing the install, the Installer gives me the error message. Cause: The version of MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Componenets) on your system does not support the Microsoft Jet Ole 4.0 Database Engine used by JCapper. More info: To learn more about MDAC, click here. Solution: Download and install MDAC 2.7 and the Jet 4.0 OLEDB Database Engine.


    • Error Number: 430 Description: Class does not support Automation or does not support expected interface. Happens When: Whenever I click Calculate Races or Build Database. The progress bar for creating the export file almost finishes but the Profile Marker doesn't come up automatically. Instead, I get the error message. Cause: The Windows dependency File named WSHOM.OCX on your system is not registered, missing, or is an incorrect version. Solution: Copy the file WSHOM.OCX from your JCapper Build Folder into your Windows System Folder and then use Regsvr32 to register the OCX file.


    • Error Description: Conponent 'RICHTX32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid. Happens When: Whenever I launch the Data Window I get this error message. Cause: The Windows dependency File named RICHTX32.OCX on your system is not registered, missing, or is an incorrect version. Solution: Copy the file RICHTX32.OCX from your JCapper Build Folder into your Windows System Folder and then use Regsvr32 to register the OCX file.

      Note~ The JCapper Installer does not overwrite pre-existing OCX files residing in your Windows\System or Windows\System32 folder(s) because the possibility exists that the files were placed there by and are needed by another program. Replacing an OCX file needed by another program with a JCapper compatible OCX may cause a conflict for that other program. For more information email JCapper Tech Support at: jeff.platt@jcapper.com
