    Loaded Readiness Review Suite for 70-270 on my laptop running Vista Home
    editon. When I tried to access the tests the following appeared, 'an
    unanticipated error has occurred in the application.Display [mslocalware]
    component 'vsocx6.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a
    file is missing or invalid'

    Can anybody help please?

    I ran into this same issue last year when I loaded a similar Readiness
    Review on my new Vista system. I simply worked around it by installing it
    on an XP system I still had, and not following up any further.

    But your message here, and a few seconds of free time, prompted me to try a
    search and see what I could find.

    Apparently it's a function of the control's failure to properly install on
    Vista due to the UAC interfering with the installation routine, and the
    failure of the Readiness Review to properly trap said failure to install.
    Here's a thread I found that describes how to 'workaround' the control
    installation issue. Once the control is successfully installed, the
    Readiness Review should run.. but I haven't actually tested this myself.

  3. Try right clicking on the shortcut and select "Run as Administrator".

    I've had practice test that require administrator rights, but for some
    reason, they don't automatically generate the your need elevate privileges
    dialog.

    Lawrence and Harvey,

    thank you very much for the help and advice you have both given. I'm now
    able to access the Readiness Review Suite.
