Topic: Survey Delete Add In error

Hi there, when installing the survey delete add in I get an error:

'The specified file is not a COM server and cannot be registered'

When acknowledging the error, recorder informs me the install has been successful but the survey delete options are not available under tools or anywhere else.

Version of recorder: 6.17.1.250
O/S : Windows 7 6.01.760 sp1

Any clues out there?

Cheers, John

Copy the .ocx file into the Addins folder manually and try installing again, worked for me in the past.

As a general rule I find that googling e.g.

nbn forum The specified file is not a COM server

takes me to a workable solution

Re: Survey Delete Add In error

For this particular addin I suggest you don't install it and use the Batch update instead. The Batch Update covers situations not covered by the addin. To run this right click on the Survey, select Batch Updates, then Delete and Batch Update JNCCDel5.  Take a backup if required then  allow the update to run. When finished close the Observation Hierarchy and re-open it to see the effect.

Copying ocf file to add-ins folder sorted it, many thanks.
