 What is a .ocx file?
An ActiveX control is a reusable, stand-alone software component that incorporates ActiveX technology and can be used by many applications within a computer or among computers in a network. An ActiveX control can be created in any programming language (such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, and Java) that recognizes Microsoft's Component Object Model (COM). In the past, ActiveX controls were referred to as OLE controls or OCX.

 How do I install the .ocx file after I have downloaded it?
Once you have downloaded the .ocx file you are looking for you still need to make sure Windows or the program causing the error can find it. Follow these steps:

* Please make sure to take all precautions before installing a .dll file. This includes scanning the file for viruses/malware and backing up you system and files. We are not responsible for errors. Please read our disclaimer before downloading or installing any file.

1. If you are encountering an error with Windows...
The .ocx file you downloaded may need to be placed into the Windows System directory. On most machines this is one of the following locations:
C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me),
C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or
C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7).

If you are encountering an error with a particular program...
The file most likely needs to be in this program's directory. This directory is where the program is installed (i.e. c:\program files\programxyz).

If the above step solves the problem, you do not need to complete step 2.

2. You may need to register this file with Windows. Click on the Start Menu and then on 'Run'.

The Run Dialog Box will popup

If you are replacing a Windows system file, type the following command in the box, changing the word file.ocx with the name of the .ocx file you are trying to install:
regsvr32 \windows\system\file.ocx (Windows 95/98/ME),
regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\file.ocx (Windows NT/2000), or
regsvr32 \windows\system32\file.ocx (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7).

The Click "OK"

If the file is registered correctly, you will receive a positive confirmation message.

If you are replacing a file for another program, change the directory where the program is located.

- example, 'regsvr32 \program files\programxyz\xyz.ocx'
