Install DLL not registering

Post by UrbanOtter »

I am trying to install AESCrypt to Win 7 Pro 64bit using the AESCrypt.msi from

I get the error, "Module C:\program Files\AESCrypt\AESCrypt.dll failed to register. HRESULT - 2147024703. Contact your support personnel."
AES Crypt 3.1 DLL Registration Error
AES Crypt 3.1 DLL Registration Error
Install AES Crypt.jpg (53.48 KiB) Viewed 7069 times
Please can someone tell me if this error is repeatable? Or is it more likely that my PC's setup is causing the error?

My C++ Runtime is Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable -10.0.40219

I do not have a previous version of AES Crypt installed. This is the first time I've tried to install it.

Many thanks.

I'm not really sure. But the more obvious things to check are:
1) did you install with administrator rights?
2) did you first try to install using setup.exe?
