Installation of Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) fails with error code 2738

When installing Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) the installation on my Windows 7 64bit machine failed with error code 2738. However, I found the solution for this problem in the Chip forum:

  • Remove the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\.
    MBSAError2738RegeditDeleteKey
  • Register vbscript.dll running regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\vbscript.dll as Administrator.MBSAError2738RegisterDLL2
    MBSAError2738RegisterDLL

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
