Error installing Foxpro Database drivers - needs Windows Scripting Host

by LitePC

When you right click on the vfpodbc.inf file and click on install to install the Foxpro database drivers you may get an error message:

Internal Error 2738

The install aborts.

This error indicates a custom action is trying to run on a system, but that it is unable to execute VBScript code. For one reason or another the VBscripting service is not running correctly and thus the install is failing.

This may happen if you uninstalled the Windows Scripting Host or vbscript using XPlite. Reinstalling the Scripting Host and VBScript will fix the problem.

If they are already installed you may want to try uninstalling then reinstalling both VBScript and the Windows Scripting Host.
