    1. Can you describe the exact error you get?

      Delete
    2. Program said to make first digits "02". I made it but brogram asked again to set first digits "02" and do nothing.

      Delete
    3. Its a standard error dialog. I would fix it such that it shows specific message according to the settings provided. Your driver is not allowing to change the MAC address on the network adapter. You can try to update or downgrade the driver and check if it works.

    1. Just uninstall TMACv6, delete the 'tabctl32.ocx' file from 'C:\Windows\System32' (for x64 OS use 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64').

      Now, just run TMACv6 setup and it will install the new version of the 'tabctl32.ocx' file. Email me if it didn't work.

      Delete
  6. I installed the program and when I run it, it generates an error that TABCTL32.OCX is missing or invalid or one of its dependencies is not registered correctly. I tried everything, uninstall and instal again. The TABCTL32 is there and it is not missing. I even tried to run it under compatibility mode, and under admin rights....Basically anything I could think of...

    Replies
    1. Just right click on the TABCTL32.OCX file, click 'Open With', browse "regsvr32.exe" file in 'C:\Windows\System32' folder and click OK. This will register the file with the system. After this try running the software again.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your prompt reply. I did as instructed and it registered. Ran the program and the same error occurred as per below:

      Error (339) Component 'TABCTL32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

      Delete
    3. I guess the UAC in Windows 7 must have prevented proper registration of the file. Try again with running CMD as Administrator and give the command regsvr32 TABCTL32.OCX (considering that you are in SysWOW64 folder on 64bit OS).

      If it doesnt work then just copy paste the file into the folder where TMAC.exe is installed and try running the software.

      Delete
    4. Did as instructed and registration was succesful but running the program produced the same error. Then copied TABCTL32.OCX to the folder where TMAX.EXE was installed and I got same error upon running the program :-(

      Delete
    5. I guess there is some problem with the OS or the file system. The OCX file is automatically registered by the TMAC setup. In your case that didnt work and neither did manual registration. I cant further guess whats wrong with the system.

      Delete
    6. hello, I have the same problem as Woody... I have made all the steps that you previously indicated and appear the same error to me:
      component TABCTL32.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.!!!

      :/ Please HELP!!!
      OS: Windows 7 ultimate 64bit

    7. Hi Platano, if uninstalling TMAC, deleting the tabctl32.ocx and reinstalling TMAC didnt work then there is not much I can do to help. There might be some issue with windows or the file system.

  7. I have download tmac 6.0.3 but "Check for Software updates" feature doesn't work.

    What about "delete network adapter from registry"? How can I use this feature?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What error message you get when you try to check for updates?

      The "delete network adapter" option is useful in case when you physically remove the network adapter from the machine without uninstalling the device drivers. You would see the removed adapter in the TMAC adapter list since the registry entries for the device still exists. You can use this option to cleanup the registry entries.

      Delete
    2. thanks for reply. the update feature issue was caused by firewall; I solved it, now tmac work properly

  8. Hello!

    1. It may be that your ISP has MAC filtering in place to stop unauthorized access to its network.

  9. Hey Shreyas.. i am using your mac address changer now when i change my mac address i also lose my internet connection. I have got a LAN connection . Please guide me what should i do in this case? Thankyou :)

    1. Hi Teji. Check with your ISP if they have MAC Filtering in place. Some ISPs have it implemented for network security. Unknown MAC addresses are not allowed to connect to the network in such cases.

    3. Try to do this:
      1. Uninstall the software
      2. Find and delete the file 'MSCHRT20.OCX'
      3. Run the setup again. The setup will install this missing file.

      Delete
  12. uninstalled it two times and deleted MSCHRT20.OCX (SysWOW64) each time
    and intalled new, after the installtion starting TMAC again same error :/

    i downloaded TMACv6.0.3_Setup.zip from your homepage two times.

    looks like the issue is on my system :(

    still thank you for your effort

    1. Looks like issue with your system itself. You can try to manually register the OCX file from CMD by giving this command regsvr32 MSCHRT20.OCX

    2. i registered it manually, but the problem is the same.

      thanks again

  13. Hello!

    When i change mac address the connection get lost and i cant acces to internet if i restore its ok why? You said to ask if ISP have MAC Filtering in place how to bypass this. Anyway it was working before only now it doesnt.

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It actually depends on network config. If the ISP has indeed implemented MAC filtering, it cannot be bypassed. Only registered MAC addresses will be allowed to pass through. It will be much clear if you can confirm with your ISP.

    Great application. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for the compliments. You can get DNS dynamically only by using DHCP. There is no other way to do it. This is how network is designed and its not an issue with the software.

  21. Are you still supporting TMAC ? It doesnt appear to be working on my system I tried the 02 octet workaround but it seems to me Windows is ignoring the locally administered MAC Address of my wireless card, and it is also ignoring the accociated registry key. I edided the registry manually changing the MAC Address, I know I edited the correct key because the wireless card configeration, locally administered MAC address setting changed to match the new registry value, but ipconfig /all reveals my original MAC address is the one being used.

    1. I am aware of this issue. It happens only times when the oui.txt file is updated by IEEE and they have messed up the text formatting. I am working out code to detect it and read the file properly. When done the update will be available through the automatic update feature.

    3. It seems the TMAC.exe file is corrupt. It may be that your computer is infected with virus and it has infected the software. This error will only occur when the self file integrity check fails. If your computer is indeed infected, reinstalling TMAC wont help since the TMAC.exe file will be infected again. You should reformat your computer and not use any of the executable files on the computer. You should download all drivers & software files again to be on safer side. Make sure you use original windows CD/DVD.
