Topic:   Error, can't get the Regestryproperty

By: RonPosted on: Jun 7 2017 at 09:53:36 AM
On a client computer, after a re-install of our program that contains scomm32.ocx, the program shows an error message with the message "Error, can't get the Regestryproperty" when program is started (the typo is part of the message). We tried to reinstall the program, but that did not help. Also running the program as administrator did not help.
Any idea how to fix this?

Pardon me, the correct error message is:
"Error, can't get Regestryproperty"

SComm32 makes a call to the Windows API

SetupDiGetDeviceRegistryProperty(...

In your case the API is throwing an error:- ERROR_INVALID_DATA

Google the function name in msdn.microsoft.com and it (almost) explains why the error is being thrown. Serial port isn't properly installed or something like that.

But to avoid having that MessageBox pop up you'll need to upgrade to a more recent version (SComm32x.ocx v9)
