I am running Windows 7 x64 with Autodesk product that range from 2010 to 2013 on a subscription 2012 and 2013 AutoCAD mep and 2011,12,13 RME
while trying to modify settings in the Style manager for Duct routing preferences in AutoCAD MEP 2012 I receive an error message.
ERROR; There is a problem with the Script Control (msscript.ocx)
This problem may be corrected by reinstalling Internet Explorer, or by Reregistering the control.
This message appears and I am forced to go to task manager to stop the acad process to clear it out.
I have tried a repair on my computer with no positive results.
I am hoping there is a simple fix but have not seen one on any message boards
i was able to correct this by using the info from a previous post. see below
i did follow as written do the first one after this message then go to the next one
i did this in the sequence as shown part 1 just do step 3 and 4 (in BOLD) after you confirm you can register the control go to Part 2 and follow the instruction as written this fixed my issue
Here is what I received from AutoDesk Tech support. Which it did not work for us, maybe it will for someone else.
1) The simplest and most common fix is to reboot the computer.
2) The next most common fix is to try a repair, from the Add/Remove Programs > AutoCAD MEP > Change/Edit button > Repair or Reinstall > Repair.
3) The scripting file is actually a Microsoft system file. You can try downloading the Windows Scripting components from (Note: this is for Windows XP customers) http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Fa
2) Next thing to try would be a repair installation. Go into Add/Remove Programs or Programs/Features in the Control Panel, find the entry for AutoCAD MEP 2010, click the Change/Remove button, select the option to Repair. Test to see whether the error persists and the installation repair completes.
3) The 64-bit version of Internet Explorer 7, and IE8, may be preventing it from operating. Please follow this link to roll Internet Explorer back to IE7 32-bit. http://www.technologyquestions.com/technology/inte
4) Try reregistering the msscript.ocx file. Open a command prompt in Windows (from the Start menu, select Run, type in CMD and then enter.) At the command prompt, enter regsvr32.exe msscript.ocx /u and then hit enter. You will receive a dialog box that says “DllUnregister Server in msscript.ocx succeeded.” Click OK. Still in the command prompt, enter regsvr32.exe msscript.ocx and then hit enter. You should receive a dialog box that says “DllRegisterServer in msscript.ocx succeeded. If it does not say that, it failed to reregister.
5) The AutoCAD MEP 2011 error may be fixed by the above suggestions, though we have one other possibility. We recently encountered that 2011 error when a user opened a file that contains electrical objects, with the desktop icon that launches AutoCAD MEP 2011 as Classic AutoCAD. Classic AutoCAD does not have the resource modules needed to draw the electrical objects. Check your 2011 desktop icon and see if it is launching MEP as classic AutoCAD. look for a different desktop icon the says AutoCAD MEP US Imperial.
Good news. We have been working on this MSscript.ocx issue.
We recently discovered the cause and developed a solution. Would you please have a look at folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Autodesk Shared, and verify the existence of the following files.
If missing please find the attached zip file, unzip and copy the above 3 into the above location. Next, let's import the attached registry settings file. To import registry, save the txt file attachment to your desktop, rename the txt file's extension to .reg, and then double click on it. That will fix the registry. Go ahead and test for the MSscript.ocx error to be gone. Please let us know your impression on the above material and if this helps. Have a great day.
I am using autocad mep 2013, I am currently having this issue. I followed the steps above and this hasnt solved the script issue. when I unzip the file I notice the tbl file wont open. i get a message that says to select a program or webservice to open the tbl file. My autocad is completely usless right now and this couldnt have happened at a worse time. HELP!
AutoCAD MEP 2013 is a new version
not sure if it matters but some solutions wont work in newer versions (but don't hold me to that)
I would uninstall clean up any registry entries relating to that version and reinstall 2013 to possibly clear things up
I have tried all of the listed solutions, plus others I have found online. I have this msscript.ocx error on both MEP2012 and 2013. It happened after a Windows update. It was fixed after a restore to a previous point, but unfortunately I forgot to turn off auto update, and the problem came back overnight when the computer updated again. I wasn't able to roll back to an earlier restore point, so I was unable to draw one pipe all day. WHAT is causing this?? I thought it was IE 11, but looking back, I see others have had the problem early than the rolling out of that. Other programs that use visual basic also get this error. Today I will try a CLEAN install of all Autodesk products and see if that helps.
Anyone esle find a solution that works yet?
Thanks! Tried re-registering the msscript.ocx module, but that didn't work. For whatever reason, the Aec32BitAppServer.dll file was missing from the Autodesk Shared folder, although the other two were there. Instead of messing around with reinstalling software, I thought I would go straight for the Aec32BitAppServer.zip download routine. That worked for Civil 3D 2013 when I thought I would have to reinstall everything, so it saved me a huge amount of time!
For information, in case it means anything to anyone, the existing Aec32BitAppServer57.exe was 88KB vs 107KB for the one in the zip file.
