HardwareDetection.ocx errors usually occur when multiple programs are sharing the same ocx file. One of these programs is uninstalled and in doing so uninstalls
the ocx file associated with the group. If HardwareDetection.ocx is missing the other programs will encounter errors when loading.
Errors can also occur from not having the correct version of the ocx file or having the ocx placed in the wrong file directory.
