8.10. Define Distributions, Add Output, and Define Correlations Do Nothing

Applies to: @RISK 5.x–7.x

When I click Define Distributions, Add Output, or Define Correlations, the background of that button in the ribbon changes color, but no window comes up. I can run a simulation, but there's no Simulation progress window, and Broswe Results doesn't open a window.

First, determine whether you need a different article:

Your RiskModel.dll component is unregistered or misregistered. To fix this, you need full administrative rights. Please follow this procedure:

  1. Open Computer, My Computer, or This PC and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Palisade or C:\Program Files\Palisade. Double-click the RISK7, RISK6, or RISK5 folder. In that folder, Shift-right-click the RiskModel.dll file, and select Copy as path.

  2. Open a command prompt as administrator.

  3. Type regsvr32 /u and a space, but don't press Enter. Right-click in the command window, select Paste, then press Enter. You may get a success or failure message. You can disregard a failure message unless the code is 0x80004005. That code means that the command window does not have full administrative rights. Close it, then open a command prompt as administrator and repeat step 3.

  4. Type regsvr32 and a space (no /u), but don't press Enter. Right-click in the window, select Paste, then press Enter. If you get a success message, close the command prompt and the RISK folder window; @RISK should now bring up all windows correctly. If you get any failure message at all, then something else is wrong.
