Installation Error

Dec 1, 2011 at 8:03 PM

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise x64 on my machine.  When I attempt to install error code 2738 is encountered.  A quick google search indicates this is a vbscript library registration issue.  I've registered the dll (regsvr32 vbscript.dll) but still have the problem.  Any advice on how to get this to install.  I need to import a ShapeFile for US zipcodes into SQL Server.  

I can do load the using Shape2SQL but it is limited to the column names in the shape file.  Not mapping the shape file to sql table.

 

Thanks,

Greg

Hi Greg,

I had not heard of this problem. Your solution looks good, but did you deleted the registry key?
Please look at this Blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/heaths/archive/2007/05/31/windows-installer-errors-2738-and-2739-with-script-custom-actions.aspx

If that does not help, please let me know.

Cheers,

Tillmann
