Hi Everyone,

I use Windows XP everything works except navigator and I get the message that Command Object Creation Failed

Does Anyone know how to fix this and I have to use 8i Lite as it for a school database project

Thanks in advance for everyone's help

    One More thing I forgot to say is that this is when you first click on it and then it exits. It never brings up the navigator window and I have tried to reinstall it 3 times already

    Thanks

    Hi. I know this response is too many years late, but I'm putting it in case someone (like me a few days ago) needs to connect to a legacy server using legacy tools:

    This error is caused by the installer, sometimes it does not adequately register the OLE/COM objects provided in nav8cmd.dll

    So, to correct it:

    - open a command window
    - change to the directory where the navigator program files reside (In my case c:\orant\bin)
    - type the following command: regsvr32 nav8cmd.dll

    You should receive a message that the DLL was correctly registered. After that you can use the navigator without problems.

    Cheers.
