Welcome to Seven Forums noideaofpc. Here is the file again, corrected. unzip it 1st.

Copy to C:\Windows\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. A Guy

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 https://www.sevenforums.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
guessing you need to untick 'hide extensions for known file types'

Hello -

I'm running an ASUS UL30-A2 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I've encountered the same missing Active X. Downloaded your zip file, unpacked it and moved COMCTL32.OCX to windows\system32 folder. Verified it was there and restarted. Per your tutorial I ran the following:
COMCTL32.OCX missing-capture1.jpg
But instead of receiving the message that the operation had succeeded, I received the following:
COMCTL32.OCX missing-capture2.jpg
Playing with Active X controls and dll's isn't my thing and I could definitely use help at this point.

Thank you very much in advance.

Did you try:
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX
or
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\COMCTL32.OCX
?

The run command as posted points to c:\windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX. I just now ran %windir%\system32\COMCTL32.OCX and received the same failure notice.

I was just now getting ready to edit my post to provide add'l information. The program involved here is iSkin. It runs as an executable which generates a popup window to shut down, restart or hibernate Windows. This function works fine. Also included is an executable that controls the appearance of the popup Window. It is this application that is causing the aforementioned problem. Also, Windows has determined this application incompatible with Win 7. I ran it Compatibility Mode (XP Sp2) and it still has the problem.

Hey, guys.
Sorry for posting after so long, but I've been having the same problems as the last person that posted.

I follow all of the steps, and when I try to register the file, I get a message saying that it failed.

Welcome to 7 forums

Try doing as suggested by KremmenUK

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.
If that fails try it with
Quote:
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX
or
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\COMCTL32.OCX
as suggested by Fayla

To sum it all up,
Click on the Start Orb
Type CMD in the search box
Right click on the 'cmd.exe' option on the top and select 'Run as Administrator'
Type the regsvr32 command there and press ENTER

I've tried that. Here is exactly what's going wrong.



I have the Comctl32.ocx file in my System32, which you can see, and I'm running CMD as admin, and it still isn't working.

(I tried the other string of commands suggested, but they all have the same result, so I just used that one as an example for the picture).

Sorry for bumping, but, this is starting to really hamper my gaming life, as I need this control to be able to continue my regular schedules.
Does anybody know what's going wrong with it?

On a 64 bit system the file comctl32.ocx should be placed into the folder c:\windows\sysWOW64

Then run: regsvr32 c:\windows\sysWOW64\comctl32.ocx
