ActiveX component can't create object.
A problem occurs when launching TM1 Perspectives (tm1p.xla).
If the user on the client-machine is not administrator of the local pc, he receives a Run-time error.
Microsoft Visual Basic
Run-time error '429':
ActiveX component can't create object
Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\IBM\cognos\bin\tm1p.xla'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.
The Tm1prc.dll is not correctly registered during installation and users with restricted operating system rights cannot register *.dll files.
Resolving the problem
The three active-x components tm1prc.dll, tm1xl.ocx and tm1dasrv.dll have to be reregistered by a local Administrator.
1) Login as local Administrator on the client machine
2) Reregister the three mentioned active-x components, (tm1prc.dll, tm1xl.ocx and tm1dasrv.dll) by going to a command prompt and cd to the TM1 installation directory bin folder and issue the following command:
Regsvr32.exe -u tm1prc.dll tm1xl.ocx tm1dasrv.dll
A message should appear that this succeeded.
NOTE: If registering on a Windows 2008 server or Windows 7, also right-click on the Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator, even though the user is an administrator.
Regsvr32.exe tm1prc.dll tm1xl.ocx tm1dasrv.dll
3) Launch Perspectives while still logged in as Administrator
4) Log off as Administrator
5) Login as non-admin user
NOTE: if this does not work then it may require that the actual Administrator user is used, rather than just a user who is a local admin. In this case, log in as Administrator, and then perform steps 2 to 5.
