    I can't register SS16X25.ocx file by using Regsvr32.exe.


    When I try to do, below error message shows up.


    "Dllname is not an executable file and no registration helper is registered for this file type."


     


    but I can register SS32X25.ocx file by using same method.
    what is difference between SS32X25.ocx and SS16X25.ocx?

    Hello,

    As per the error messga, it seems you are trying to register an .ocx file meant for 16 bit operating system using RegSvr32 utility. And as the name suggest, one .ocx file is for 32 bit operating system(like  XP-Pro) and one is for 16 bit operating system (like Windows-95). Have you tried using the RegSvr.exe that can be used to register 16 bit dll's/files(Reference) ?

    Thanks
