Problem

When you attempt to use VBA, Intelligent Shapes or OrgCharts you may get one of the following error dialogs:

"igxInshapesAddin

Run-time error '-2147467259(80004005)':

Class not registered.

You need the following file to be installed on your machine. MSSTDFMT.DLL."

 Or the error:

"Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications

---------------------------

Compile error in hidden module: ThisShapeClass.

This error commonly occurs when code is incompatible with the version, platform, or architecture of this application. Click "Help" for information on how to correct this error."

Solution:

In both cases you will need to download the attached file (msstdfmt.dll) and register it using regsvr32.ex.

  1. Download the attached msstdfmt.dll to your hard drive
  2. Copy msstdfmt.dll to c:\windows\system32 if running on a 32 bit OS or to c:\windows\syswow64 if running on a 64 bit OS.
  3. Open a command prompt (cmd.exe) with administrator privileges
  4. In the prompt, if you're using a 32-bit OS type in: regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\msstdfmt.dll
    If running on a 62-bit OS then type regsvr32 c:\windows\syswow64\msstdfmt.dll

If you've followed the instructions successfully, you will get a dialog "Registration succeeded" and the issues should go away.
