Run-time Error '52' Trying to Open Component Library


After you associate the .TLB extension with the COMTI program ComponentBuilder.exe, and then try to open a COMTI component library by double-clicking the .TLB file entry in Windows Explorer, the following error message appears:
Title: Component Builder
Text: Run-time error '52':
Bad file name or number.


The current working directory for Component Builder must be the directory in which COMTI is installed.


To work around this problem, do one of the following:

  • Start Component Builder. On the File menu, click Open, select the component library, and open it. -or-

  • Place a shortcut icon (not an icon for the actual executable file) for ComponentBuilder.exe on the desktop and drag the component library from Windows Explorer onto the icon.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft COM Transaction Integrator for CICS and IMS version 1.0 included with SNA Server 4.0. We are researching this problem and will post additional information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
