    I tried to install a program that is Vista compatible, and I keep getting an
    error pop up stateing "Cannot install software because JScript is not propey
    registered. Please repair JScript the restart installer".

  2. Hi Grawlr

    You haven't given a whole lot of information to work with; eg, what
    application? And what was the actual exact text of the error message?

    However ... to register Jscript is pretty easy. Open a Command Prompt as
    Administrator - go to Start menu, find Command Prompt, right click and
    choose "Run as Administrator" from teh context menu. Give the administrative
    consent when prompted. Then an administrative command prompt will open.

    Change directory to System32 -

    C:\Users\Administrator>cd \Windows\System32<enter>


    Then use the regsvr32 command to re-register JScript.dll -

    C:\Windows\System32>regsvr32 jscript.dll<enter>

    You should get a message that the DLL was successfully registered. Type
    "exit" to close the Command Prompt. Now try to install your program again.

    If it continues to fail, please provide more background information about
    the problem (or, check the vendor's support website).

    Hope it helps,
