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 win7 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).

You may also look at this thread. It seems to be similar to the problem you are having.

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.
