If you own an Alinco DJ-X11 and have downloaded the provided cloning software or remote software you  may have noticed that you may get a  “run time error 339, Component MSCOMM32.OCX or one of it’s dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or corrupt” error. This is more likely to happen if you run the programs under Vista or Windows  7.

The problem is that it looks like that the Alinco remote control program and the cloning utility was written in Visual Basic. The runtime that programs that were distributed do not install the MSCOMM32.OCX component needed for serial communications. MSCOMM32.OCX is no longer distributed with later versions of windows. You will need to Google MSCOMM32.OCX and find a place to download it. Once you have the file you will need to do the following:

1. Copy the file to your windows/system32 directory
2. Go to the Start Menu/Accessories/Run
3. Enter regsvr32/C:/Windows/System32/MSCOMM32.OCX

The program should tell you the file was registered.

You should now be able to run the Remote Control Program and the Cloning Utility

The DJ-X11T is a great radio for the money, but still needs better software support
