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 Win7 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.

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

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 https://www.sevenforums.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
