How to manually register a .OCX file (Might work for .DLL? haven't tried this yet)

  1. Download the .OCX file from somewhere trusted.
  2. Back up your current copy of MSCOMCT2.OCX and copy the new version to the same file location. This file should be located in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory on your C: drive (for Windows NT and 2000: \WINNT\system32).
  3. Using your mouse, click on the "Start" button and then click on "Run".

  4. According to your Operating System, type the following command to register this library file:

    Windows 95, 98, or Me:
    regsvr32 \windows\system\MSCOMCT2.OCX

    Windows NT or 2000:
    regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\MSCOMCT2.OCX

    Windows XP:
    regsvr32 \windows\system32\MSCOMCT2.OCX

  5. You should see a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded"
