MS Windows services MMC extended blank view.

The extended view of Services Management Console (services.msc) displays the service description and also has links to Start or Stop services. In some systems, the Extended view may appear blank, as in the below screen:

services mmc blank

This could happen in different Windows systems (XP, 2003, WIN7, etc.) because of the broken jscript.dll registration. To fix this problem login with administrator priviliges, and then run the following command from Start, and then Run dialog:

regsvr32.exe jscript.dll

You should then see the output message “DllRegisterServer in jscript.dll succeeded.”

This fixes the Extended view. Close and reopen Services MMC.

    We tried the dll registration – did not help. We then uninstalled IE 11 which leaves us with IE 8 (default). Services and other applications where content was not rendering correctly are now fine.
