I recently installed a software program. When I open it on Vista, it gives me a notice; Run-time error '339': Component 'RICHTX32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid. The software people have a patch, Richtext Editor, which downloads and installs (it says) but has no effect. It appears in my programs list but will not allow me to uninstall it because it reckons I do not have administrator rights. (This is MY laptop--I am the sole user, so if I don't have the right to control it------ !) . I've uninstalled the software program and reinstalled it from scatch. I've even tried running it in compatibility mode for XP, and that didn't work either. . The software manufacturer says XP shipped with the files I need but Vista doesn't, and ended up saying that "some versions of Vista are tempremental". I have tried it on another computer that runs XP and it works perfectly, but I need to use it on my laptop as I don't have access to the other machine all the time. Have I wasted my money, or is there some way to get the wretched program to work????
