SDR14X.dll Unable to register the DLL/OCX: RegSvr32

Post by soundgeek » Sat Dec 22, 2018 3:05 am

WINE is working well on Ubuntu 16.04 on my PC (i7).

I am trying to install SpectraVue in order to present the output of a FUNcube Dongle Pro+ and create a Software Defined Radio (SDR). http://www.rfspace.com/RFSPACE/SpectraVue.html

The SpectraVue install runs nearly to the end and then I get the error message:
"SDR14X.dll Unable to register the DLL/OCX: RegSvr32 failed with exit code 0x3"
so I aborted and it rolled back the installation.

I have found SDR14X.dll online and downloaded it & tried copying it into SYSTEM32, SYSWOW64 and the SpectraVue folders and the installation fails in the same way.

I don't know what "unable to register" means. Can anyone help?

If you look at the terminal output:

Code: Select all

0054:err:module:import_dll Library MFC42.DLL (which is needed by L"c:\\SpectraVue\\SDR14X.dll") not found
In other words use winetricks to install mfc42.dll

Code: Select all

winetricks mfc42

jkfloris,

I don't know where you got the terminal output from, but thank you for flagging up mcf42.dll. The winetricks line has worked, so I will try SpectraVue again.

Thanks for the information.

You were so kind to post a link where to download the program, so I could try it myself and get the same error message.

jkfloris,

well done on the research there!

I tried the winetricks line you gave me & that worked fine & the .dll is installed & SpectraVue installed fine. Now I need to see whether SV will take the output from my FUNcube Pro+ dongle.

Thank you for your help.
