Error message: 'Can't find script engine ...'
Updated by Pavle Lacarac on May 20, 2014

MediaMonkey addons (scripts) depend upon the Windows Scripting framework for addons to run.  If it isn't installed or configured correctly, then addons may fail or result in errors. Some anti-virus applications may prevent scripts from being registered; this error can occur if the anti-virus application tries to scan an addon before allowing it to be run by Windows' scripting engine, and fails to find the vbscript.dll file after scanning is complete, which results in the error.

The problem is sometimes introduced after Microsoft patch MS10-020 ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;981332 ) has been installed and Kaspersky Internet Security is running.

To resolve, you may edit the registry using REGEDIT:

----
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B54F3742-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B54F3743-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32]

And write "C:\Windows\system32\vbscript.dll" as key values

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3742-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3743-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32]
