Error: Component Not Registered or Component Missing

Christopher H Updated by Christopher H


After successfully installing and then running the software, one of the following error messages is displayed:

Component Missing

Component Not Registered

The software fails to run.

These messages usually mentions a specific file by name. This file will have either a .DLL or .OCX filename extension.


There is a good chance a pending Windows update is causing this problem.


Reboot the computer, then try to run our software again.

Rebooting the computer will allow Windows to finish its update and perform some housekeeping related to the update. When finished our software should run without issue.

How did we do?

Error: "The program cannot connect to the CFS server"

Form is missing text and/or graphics (boxes, shading and lines)
