Runtime Errors in Quality Window 5 and QWXL3

Runtime errors in Quality Window 5 and QWXL3 do happen on occasion. The most frequently reported runtime error is “429 ActiveX component can’t create object”. This error can occur in a number of different scenarios with the most common being product installation problems or a shared file being unregistered or uninstalled by another software product.

The 429 error cannot be easily resolved on your own. Pinpointing the faulty component may require the help of Busitech support in order to track it down. As a first step, we have provided a simple utility program that you can download that will re-register all components in use by Quality Window 5 or QWXL3.

For Quality Window 5 navigate, using File Explorer, to the file QWReg.bat located in the same directory as the QW50 programs.  Typically C:/Program Files(x86)/Busitech/QW50 – 64 bit C:/Program Files/Busitech/QW50  – for all else.

Once you locate it, just double click it and a Window will open.  When the process of re-registering is complete the window will close.  Try to run the process that was generating the error again.

If the error is still present, you should contact Busitech Technical Support
