I get Run-time error "711"?

Make sure you are the administrator of your computer.

If you installed SwiftKit to the default location:
1. Go to Start > Run and type: regsvr32 "c:\program files\swiftkit\swiftirc.ocx"

2. If you get an error with error code go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Right-click Command Prompt and select Run As Admin. Then type the regsvr command again.

After you have done this, and it tells you that it has succeeded then retry SwiftKit.

If that doesn't work and you recieve an error code, try this:

1. Make sure that you are the Administrator of your computer.
2. Go to Start than Accessories and right-click Command prompt and select Run as Administrator
3. Enter in regsvr32 "c:/program files/swiftkit/swiftirc.ocx"

If you still get the error you are going to have to do the following.

Make sure you are the administrator of your computer.

1. Go to Start > Run and type in regedit
2. Do a search for swiftIrc.SwiftIrcClient (Edit > Find)
3. For every key that you get an error on, right click it on the left hand side and select permissions. Click Advanced and then the Owner tab. Select the account that you are on and press OK.
4. Repeat step 3 till you no longer get any errors while searching.
5. Do the steps at the beginning of the article.

If u are using Windows Vista then just left click on Swiftkit icon on your desktop and press Run as administrator!! It also works on another games.
