DaqView Error: "Failed to create VScope"

Question: <When I launch DaqView, it gives me an error: "Failed to create VScope"  How can I fix this?> 

Answer: <There are two possible reasons why you are seeing this error message.  Here is how to resolve the problem in each case:

1) You are missing certain Microsoft software components - For recent versions of DaqView to install correctly, your computer must have a good installation of Microsoft’s .NET Framework 1.1.  You can check on this by going into your Windows Control Panel and running the Add/Remove Programs utility program.  You should see the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 in the list.  Also, for the .NET Framework 1.1 to run correctly, you must have Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 (or later) installed on your computer.  If you have neither of these software components properly installed, you will have to go to the Microsoft web site and download and install these components.

2) The VScope component was not registered properly in Windows - The software component called “vscope.dll” must be registered properly in Windows during the installation of DaqView.  If it is not, you can uninstall DaqView (using the Add/Remove Programs utility in the Windows Control panel), reinstall DaqView, and then reboot the computer.  Of course, you must have Administrative rights on your computer to be able to do this.

If reinstalling DaqView does not fix the problem, the other solution is register the component manually.  You do this by getting a DOS prompt, navigating to the directory that contains the vscope.dll component (usually c:\windows\system32) and then entering a “regasm vscope.dll” command to register the component.>
