Windows 7: COMCTL32.OCX missing

COMCTL32.OCX missing

I am trying to run an application (FS Flight Calculator) and it gives me this error message "Component 'COMCTL32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid

I have Windows 7 Ult 64b, I searched my OS HD and this file is not on the HD. In Windows\Sys32 I have comctl32.dll and in Windows\SysWOW64 I have scomctl32.dll and comdlg32.ocx, but no where is there comctl32.ocx.

In the command window with adminstrative privilages I did the sfc /scannow command and WRP did not find any integrity violations.

How do I get this file, I did a google search and I all can see is to register the file, but I can not register the file because I do not have the file.

Download COMCTL32.OCX (right click and save to your Desktop).

Attachment 100981

Copy to C:\System32

Start> Type Run in search box and press enter

Type the following command to register the file

regsvr32 \windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX

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

Restart system and try again. Good luck. A Guy

Hope I'm not stepping on any toes
A small correction there,
the folder should be 'C:\Windows\system32'
and you shouldn't have to restart the system for it to take effect.

If I may also supply another route as the Start > Run > regsvr command does not always work in Win 7 due to security.

In the bottom Search panel enter "CMD" - when the upper box shows CMD.EXE as an option right click it and select the 'run as administrator' option and type in the same regsvr command string as above.

A Guy, the file in your zip file is comctl32.htm

Can you provide the correct file?

Thanks for trying anyway!

Just rename the comctl32.htm to comctl32.ocx. It works.

Sorry about that. I had saved it to my desktop, didn't see it had changed. Glad you got it sorted, and we could help. A Guy

Netbook Windows 7 Starter
 
 
Same problem

hy, I've the same problem on my netbook aspire one. I tried to follow all steps, but I don't know, how I can change the end of the htm-file ? Do I need to unzip it first? Sorry, it might be a silly question for you, but I'm not at all at computers... Before I started to follow the steps, I already had this comctl32.ocx in the sys32. But know, after several tries, I lost the original too... The problem started, as I tried to install a software. So please, help me. Thanks in advance Greetings Swiss girl http://www.sevenforums.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
