Register ActiveX Components Manually

Register ActiveX Components Manually

Not all ActiveX DLL and OCX files include installation programs to properly register the control. You need to run REGSVR32.EXE manually to perform the registration. You can save time by creating a shortcut in your WINDOWSSENDTO folder called “Register ActiveX Control.” Use the target name of C:WINDOWSREGSVR32.EXE for the shortcut. When you have an ActiveX control you wish to register, right-click on the file name to display the context menu, click on “Send To,” and click on “Register ActiveX Control.” The RegSvr32 program will display a message box indicating the success or failure of the registration.
