The 64-bit controls that are installed with the ActiveX Edition for ComponentOne can be completed through the ComponentOne Control Panel. Many of our customers have asked us how to manually register our ActiveX controls on their 32-bit or 64-bit machines. This post will provide you with the steps required to register these controls manually.

As most modern computers are running 64-bit operating systems, the most important thing to remember while manually registering these controls is that you need to install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the control onto your 64-bit machine. To register the 32-bit control versions, you will need to put the 32-bit version of the ActiveX control in the SysWOW64 folder (path: (C:) > Windows > SysWOW64) and run the regsvr32 found within your SysWOW64 folder.

To register the 64-bit control versions, you will need to put the 64-bit version of the ActiveX control into the System32 folder (path: (C:) > Windows > System32) and run the regsvr32 within the System32 folder.
Registering 32-bit ActiveX Controls

  1. Copy the 32-bit ActiveX Control files into C:\Windows\SysWOW64
  2. Right-click open and run a Command Prompt with administrative rights
  3. Go to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder using the following command: cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64
  4. Type the following command: regsvr32 <controlname.ocx>

Registering 64-bit ActiveX Controls

  1. Copy the 64-bit ActiveX Control files into C:\Windows\System32
  2. Right-click open and run a Command Prompt with administrative rights
  3. Go to the C:\Windows\System32 folder using the following command: cd C:\Windows\System32
  4. Type the following command: regsvr32 <controlname.ocx>

Registering the Control Using C1Regsvr

If the above steps using regsvr32 fail to register the controls, then please try our C1Regsvr tool by using the following steps:

  1. Download C1Regsvr
  2. Open the .zip file and save the c1regsvr file to any drive, for example: C:\Windows\System32
  3. Run the Command Prompt with administrative rights
  4. Access the folder where you saved the c1regsvr tool by using the following command: cd C:\Windows\System32
  5. Type the following command: c1regsvr /v <controlname.ocx>

For example: C:\Windows\System32> c1regsvr /v vsflex8.ocx

If the above steps fail to register our controls, then open a support ticket here and one of our Technical Engagement Engineers will review your case and respond to you within 24 business hours.
