There are a number of factors that may need to be done. The final resolution step in one case was to register the jscript.dll.

1) Open a Windows Administrator Command Prompt.

2) Navigate to the location where the latest jscript.dll was installed. Installing a current version of Java may have been a step completed recently prior to obtaining XOG.
In this case, the latest copy was located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

3) Run the command "regsvr32.exe jscript.dll".
There should be a confirmation message "RegSrvr32. DIIRegisterServer in jscript.dll succeeded."

NOTE: You must run this from an Administrator Command Prompt. Running from a regular Command Prompt will fail with this message:

"RegSrvr32. The module 'jscript.dll' was loaded but the call to DIIRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005."

4) Retry the XOG.exe installation, and it should complete that step.

Additional Information

If this procedure does not allow the XOG Windows client to install, then continue to troubleshoot as a Java/JavaScript issue.

For example, check that the JAVA_HOME path is populated in the Environment Variables, check that a current/correct version of Java is installed, check that there are no conflicts with old versions and so on.
