Problem in vbs file win 7 64 bit

Hi,
I am having problems in vbs files in win 7 64 bit laptop.

When i try to open a default vbs compressed file to write the info to registry, i get an error message from Windows Script Host stating that " There is no script engine for file extension ".reg".

Due to this I am unable to restore/ correct file associations to Windows 7 default status.

Pl. halp.

How do I correct this problem?

I'm not completely sure if this will work, but it's worth a go:
  1. In the Start menu, type "default" then click on Default Programs.
  2. Click on "Associate a file type or protocol to a program".
  3. Scroll down to the ".reg" entry, double-click on it.
  4. If "Registry Editor" is already in the list shown, then select it and click OK. Otherwise, click Browse, go to C:\Windows and select RegEdit.exe, then click Open, and then OK in the other window.
  5. This should have set ".reg" files to open with Registry Editor (as they should).

Windows 7 64-bit
If you have a 64-bit operating system, you will need to follow these steps:
Open a command window as Administrator, click Start type cmd in the search box, when found right-click on the cmd.exe program and choose "Run as Administrator". Paste the following commmand line in the command and hit enter.

reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f

That comand removes the wrong registry entry for VBScript support on Windows 7 64-bit. Then register VBSscript engine by typing the following command:

c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32 vbscript.dll

Windows 7 32-bit
For a 32-bit Win 7, the steps are similar:
Open a command window as Administrator, click Start type cmd in the search box, when found right-click on the cmd.exe program and choose "Run as Administrator". Paste the following commmand line in the command and hit enter.

reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f

That comand removes the wrong registry entry for VBScript support on Windows 7 64-bit. Then register VBSscript engine by typing the following command:

c:\windows\system32\regsvr32 vbscript.dll

After following these steps you should be able to install your program without Error 2738 on on a Windows 7.
