Windows 7: Is there a fix?

Is there a fix?

I have a program that requires the MSCOMM32.ocx driver. When I try to register it with the REGSVR32.exe I get:

The module "C:\Windows\System32\MSCOMM32.OCX" failed to load.

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to
check for problems with the binary or dependent.DLL files.

The specified module could not be found.

I have tried running the "cmd" as the administrator and still cannot register this file.

The company this program came from is NO HELP .... They will address the Windows 7 issue at a later date?
In the mean time I cannot run this program on my new Windows 7 machine

The program is Mapreader. It will run in XP and Vista but so far not in 7.

Did not work in Vista mode either

Unless I am doing something wrong here?

Unistalled program first.
Right clicked on install.exe file and under properties chose the Vista SP2 compatible.
Then installed program as usual.
Tried to register the MSCOMM32.ocx file it uses and get the same error as above

I guess you can register mscomm32.ocx manually

Start > Regedit > HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Licenses\4250E830-6AC2-11cf-8ADB-00AA00C00905

Right side panel you can see Default value try to add kjljvjjjoquqmjjjvpqqkqmqykypoqjquoun
