OCXregisterTool.exe - Helper
App (Digitally Signed) to ease registering & unregistering OCX files.
REGISTERING OCX's and DLL's ( excluding Vista users - see
HERE, Win 7 users see
HERE, and Win 8 users see HERE )
All the DLL's and OCX's supplied are supposed to be 'self-registering' (according to Microsoft) however this can also depend on how your organizations security settings are configured, and also possibly any user 'profile' you may have set up (which may prevent DLL's being registered).
There are now at least 3 methods you can use to register DLL's on a PC...
1. From the users workstation, run Windows Explorer & browse to the server WHOS-IN folder. Right click on OCXregisterTool.exe and choose RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. You can then select the OCX you wish to register.
2. From the users workstation, log on to the PC as a Network Administrator, browse to the server WHOS-IN folder, and run USER.EXE. The NetAdmin security settings should force registration of any necessary files.
3. Manually register an OCX or DLL (logged on as the normal user)
From the users PC, Select the START / RUN command, and enter:
REGSVR32 \\YourServer\YourShare\Path\filename.OCX where:
\\YourServer\YourShare\Path\ is the path to the WHOS-IN folder on the server, and filename is the name of the OCX
you need to register.
(Use REGSVR if REGSVR32 does not exist on the users PC)
