Error 1904 can occur when one of the following conditions is true:

• The file is not installed correctly.
• The file is corrupted.
• Other programs, including memory-resident and anti-virus programs, are running and using any version of the file.

If ignoring the error does not work then you can register the file manually:

To register a specific file again in the registry, while you are working in Windows 7, follow these steps:

1. Click Start and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type the following command RegSvr32 'filename' and then click OK

3. Where filename is ***** ***** be the file specified in Error 1904, omitting the apostrophes.

4. You should receive a message that the file is now correctly registered.

Let me know if that works?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
