nope .... same error.

To make sure I am doing this right:

In windows 7 - I click "start"
In the search bar I type "cmd"
This shows the cmd under programs, I right click and choose "Run as Administrator"
I get the User Account Control pop up ... allow the following program to make changes....etc. .... I click on "Yes"
This brings up the Dos looking window, in it has

c:\windows\system32>

I type: regsvr32 MSCOMM32.ocx
or: regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\MSCOMM32.ocx

And still get the error ?

As far as I can see, you're accessing the command right. Maybe unregistering the file, deleting it then downloading it again might work I'm out of ideas

I had the same problem

mscomm32.ocx was in the sysWOW64 folder but not the system32. I copied it to system32 and it worked fine.

It worked but the file was not there?

So I copied the mscomm32.ocx from the system32 folder to the sysWOW64 folder.
I was then able to go to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder and run the regsvr32.exe

So far the program that needed it seems to be working

THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!
