i tired to install my blackberry desktop software and everytime i go to install it, it says "ERROR 2738 COULD NOT ACCESS VBSCRIPT RUN TIME FOR CUSTOM ACTION" does anyone know what to do?? it's driving me crazy i need to put music and ringtones on my phone..
Re: Software issue
Sounds like a Windows or Microsoft Installer Package problem. That's not the same error code I have seen being reported but, you can check the Microsoft technical support knowledge base for the code and see what it has.
Re: Software issue
Your issue is that Vista and Media Manager dont seem to get along, Take a look at this information from the RIM web site. FIRST try to install DM 4.3 - reports are much better with Vista and 4.3.
Error 2738. Could not access VBScript run time for custom action. BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.2 installation fails on a computer with Windows Vista
- BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 4.2
- Microsoft® Windows Vista™
The following error occurs when the VBScript is not registered:
Error 2738. Could not access VBScript run time for custom action
Microsoft Windows Vista does not register the VBScript by default.
To register the VBScript, complete the following steps on your computer:
Note: If a message appears stating that the file could not be found, the vbscript.dll file is not in the default location. In this case, search for the vbscript.dll file on the computer and follow the steps listed previously, but instead of typing regsvr32 %windir%\system32\, type the path for the vbscript.dll file.
- Select Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.
- Type regsvr32 %windir%\system32\vbscript.dll and press Enter.
When installing BlackBerry Desktop Manager, choose the custom install option, and un-select Media Manager, so that it is not installed.
