I was having WMP problems and was told to run regsvr32 jscript.dll to see if it was working. I recieved a DllREgisterServer failed error. I was told if I got this to run misconfig And hit "expand file". I then put regsvr32 jscript.dll into the first field and filled the second to DRIVER.cab and the last field to shared documents. Now JavaScript isn't working at all. Did I fill out the last two fields incorrectly and how can I fix it?

Okay bit bizarre but I'll give you the instructions. Though why not just reinstall WMP ?

Okay and heres how to expand the file in msconfig.
1st Box: jscript.dll
2nd Box: D:\i386\jscript.dl_ ( The D:\ will change depending on what your CDROM drive is)
3rd Box: C:\windows\system32
After that rename your original jscript.dll to jscript.old and rename jscript.dl_ to jscript.dll then type in a command prompt
regsvr32 jscript.dll

Thanks. Tried it with no luck. Would a system restore be a possible solution?

Might also try running SFC /SCANNOW

Sorry, I can't work a computer to save my life. :P What is SFC/SCANNOW?

Edit: System Restore runs on JavaScript apparently...

Are you WMP problems fixed? what are your WMP problems and why was it suggested that you do a regsvr32 jscript.dll to fix it?
Sorry going back to the root of the problem here to try and work out what was the original problem..

Start, Run, type SFC/SCANNOW and hit ok.

I followed instructions for WMP I found here:

http://www.opentechsupport.net/forums/a ... 451-1.html

At this point i'm not really worried about WMP. I'm a web designer and it's rather difficult to code JavaScript effectively without being able to test it. :P

I've tried the SFC/SCANNOW and it doesn't exist on my computer. Anyway if you'll look at my initial message you'll see how badly I screwed up with the "file expansion". :P

hehe it wasn't so much to know if WMP was working but more to establish the reason behind the jscript.dll because I had no idea that WMP even made use of jscript.dll. I wondered it maybe you had followed some bad advice originally but it looks clean, comes from a MS knowledgebase etc.

Try this:
Download and install the latest Windows Scripting Host from here:

Thanks. The download was running smoothly but ended in:

"Error registering the OXC C:\WINDOWS\system32\jscript.dll"

Could this be because of the old jscript.dll? I can't find the old one anywhere and i'd expect it to be somewhere in shared documents based on what I initially placed in the expand form:

regsvr32 jscript.dll
DRIVER.cab
shared documents

Thanks. I found it. Didn't realize there was a C:\Windows\system32 and a C:\I386\system32...

I'm thinkign about your initial instructions...when I located the jscript.dl_ file in the I386 folder I right-clicked, went to properties, and changed the file name to jscript.dll. However, it's still registered as a dl_ file. Am I not converting the file type?

Did you expand it? The dl_ file is a compressed version of that file. Once you expand it from msconfig it should be about twice the size of the original .dl_ file.

D:\I386\jscript.dl_
jscript.dll
C:\Windows\system32

Would that be how i'd go about expanding it? My apologies...computers are anything but my forte...

If I can't manage to get this fixed, I did find my Windows XP Backup CD. Should I be able to register the information there?

jscript.dll
D:\I386\jscript.dl_
C:\windows\system32

After that you will still have to go and rename the jscript.dll to jscript.old and rename jscript.dl_ to jscript.dll.

While your about it expand this one too:
regsvr32.ex_
D:\I386\regsvr32.ex_
C:\windows\system32

Rename the existing regsvr32.exe to regsvr32.old and then rename regsvr32.ex_ to regsvr32.exe.

Then register the jscript.dll file using
Start -> Run ->
regsvr32 jscript.dll
