    Unable to Register ocx


    I'm trying to register MsCal.ocx to use with Access 2010.

    I placed MsCal.ocx in the SysWoW64 and ran as administrator:

    %systemroot%SysWoW64regsvr32 mscal.ocx\

    I'm getting the following error:"


    C:\WINDOWSSysWoW64regsvr32' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    If that is a direct copy and paste then there is no backslash between C:\Windows and SysWow64. Take another look. Your mind expects it and so is filling it in.
