    Unable to registrer "RICHTX32.OCX" and "MSWINSCK.OCX"!!!

    Hello! I'm trying to registrer the .ocx's mentioned above.
    I first put the .ocx's in the windows/system32, and thereafter ran the regsvr32 command in cmd (as an administrator). I also tried to registrer them from the windows/SYSwow64. (I run x86).
    However, I get the following error for both of the attemps:

    The module ".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.

    Did you copy the ocx files into syswow64, then do this?

    cd \windows\syswow64
    regsvr32 filename.dll

    It's a .ocx not a .dll.
    Yes. I opened CMD (as Administrator)
    cd windows
    cd syswow64 regsvr32 filename.OCX

    I also did exacly the same with two other files (in system32), and it worked. It is just RICHTX32.OCX and MSWINSCK.OCX that's not working.

    Try installing Karen's tiny replicator program - see if that is able to register RICHtx32.OCX ( it does that during installation ). Great program, btw. Tho it says sys32 below, they are in fact in syswow64

    Did it say it had registered

    RICHtx32.OCX ?

    If so, that is half what you wanted to do..

    If not , there may be an issue with your system somewhere. I haven't come across this before.

    Maybe try this now:

    regsvr32 c:\windows\syswow64\MSWINSCK.OCX

    I always run cmd as admin.

    Richtx32.ocx works great now! Thanks.
    "MSWINSCK.OCX" still isn't registrated, but couldn't that be due to not being located in the windows\system32 folder during installation of "Karen's Replicator"?

    As far as I know, Karen's doesn't use or install MSWINSCK.OCX.

    I think it should be in sysWOW64, rather than sys32.

    Thank you so much!
    It worked by placing "MSWINSCK.OCX" in syswow64, and thereafter running the "regsvr32 MSWINSCK.OCX" command in cmd (as admin). Thank you very much for your assistance.
