Errors 429, 338, 339, 20515 or -214

Error 429, 338, 339 - ActiveX component can't create object or return reference to this object.  Error 20515 error in formula or error (-214...) remaining text does not appear to be part on the formula when printing on the PO, Proposal, or Invoice.

These errors are most commonly caused by a damaged or missing installation.  To fix the problem install the Design Manager Pro 6.0 Client or run the SE6/Pro 7.0 installation.  If SE6 or Pro 7.0 are already on the list under Add/Remove Programs in the control panel then go to Add/Remove Programs, click on Design Manager SE6 or Pro 7.0, click on Support Information, and click on Repair.

For Pro 6.0, if the client is already installed, remove the client using Add/Remove programs under the Windows Control Panel and then re-install the client (make sure that only the ?Client? is removed, removing the standalone setup or server setup can result in data loss).

Detailed Instructions for installing the client for Pro 6.0 are as follows?

Whether Design Manager has been installed on a peer-to-peer network or a LAN, each workstation computer (client) attached to the server must be set up. To run the client (workstation) setup, follow these steps: 

1) Go to the workstation computer that you wish to make run Design Manager.  (You do not need the Design Manager CD.)

2) Double click on My Computer (for Windows XP click on Start and then My Computer).

3) Find the network drive that received the Design Manager Server Installation and double click on it.  Next, find the Design Manager folder (usually named 'DMPRO60') and double click on it.

4) Find a folder named 'Client' and double click on it.

5) Finally, double click on the Setup executable to run the setup.

The setup wizard will eventually ask you to set the location of the server files.  This must be set to the Design Manager directory (usually called 'DMPRO60') on your server.  An example is of this setting is 'N:\DMPRO60' where 'N' is your network drive letter and DMPRO60 is the Design Manager folder.  This folder is also the same as the one that you browsed to in order to find the 'client' folder (see #3 above).

The client installation can also be run from the CD by choosing 'Network Setup' and then 'Run the Client / Workstation Setup' from the install menu.

The setup will have to be run under each user account that logs into the computer.  To run the setup for all user accounts, log in as the administrator and the run the setup using the /V'ALLUSERS=1' switch.  For example, at a command prompt and in the client subdirectory type:

C:\DMPRO60\Client>  setup.exe /V?ALLUSERS=1?
