Windows 7: object library not registered...

object library not registered...

Hi. I am trying to run an old *.ocx file (that I used to run) from windows XP. I am now trying to run the same application in Windows 7. Despite the fact that I had successfully registered this *.ocx file in .../systems32 and .../syswow64 using (in each directory) regsvr32 myoxcfile.ocx, when running or even opening the VB6 project I would get an error implying there is an object missing. Ok. So I went to the components window to add-in this control. However, when I clicked apply I would get the "...Object library not registered". Why? I even copied regsvr32 into the working/project folder then successfully registered it. Why is the VB6 still not see this ocx file? Please advise.

Windows 7 32 bit

Where did you get the .ocx? If it is 16 bit it would run on 32 bit XP but not on 64 bit W7.

Edit: if this is the case I would check into DosBox. It may work then. 32 bit Windows versions have 16 bit emulators. 64 bit Windows versions have 32 bit emulators. But not 16 bit. So something like DosBox may be needed.
