The message generally appears soon after installing SpecWare when trying to connect to a Model 100 (button) Logger.  It is a result of Windows failing to register a key component during the registration.

Quick solution:  Click Windows "Start", then "Run...", and type the following line:

regsvr32 c:\Windows\System32\owapi.dll

and click "Ok".

Not as quick, but less typing:  Reinstall SpecWare from the CD.

If neither of the above solve the problem, call for assistance.  Be prepared to email one of the following files:

c:\Windows\SpecWare 8 Pro Setup.log

c:\Windows\SpecWare 8 Basic Setup.log
