    Comdlg32.ocx

    I've been trying to register Comdlg32.ocx on my new system... quite the exercise in frustration! For a while, it wouldn't find the file, but I think I have worked around that problem by giving permissions to all users, since you can't Run As Admin for an .ocx file.

    However, I'm geting a new error now:

    The module "comdlg32.ocx" may not be compatible with the version of Windows that you're running. Check to see if the module is compatible with an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of regsvr32.ocx.

    My system is a 64-bit, so I'm pretty sure I would need the 64-bit comdlg32.ocx module. Does such a thing exist? Where can I find it? There are lots of sites out her with downloads for this module, but none seem to specify 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Thanks!

    See the following

    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/comdlg32.htm

    regsvr32 <ocx/dll filename>
    to register, and
    regsvr32 /U <ocx/dll filename>
    to unregister

    Did you not read the OP's post? It seems to me that he has already tired
    what you are suggesting, and he cannot do it. It flat-out told him that he
    cannot register the comdlg32.ocx on the machine, which is a 32 bit solution
    he is trying to reegister on a 64 bit machine.

    Re: Comdlg32.ocx

    Hi Peter,

    Yes, that is the command I have been trying since I bought my machine, but it is not working. I either get the error from my original message, or this one:

    The module "C:\Windows\system32\comdlg32.ocx" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found.

    Most likely, comdlg32.ocx is dependant upon some other DLL(s) that are not
    on the 64 bit platform that are on the 32 bit platform.

    Re: Comdlg32.ocx

    And which is the same(comdlg32.ocx ) on a 64bit and if the OP will check in his system file he should see it as such.

    As an example Same as before Win98 was 32 bit and was running 16 bit from previous systems as does XP among others

    Just do a search for a 64 bit of this file for example on Google

    Thanks Peter. I'm having trouble digging up a 64 bit version of this module. Can you find one for me??

    There is no 64 bit version of comdlg32.ocx. It's a 32 bit COM solution.

    You can still register the ocx. For Vista Ultimate x64, you need to place
    the Comdlg32.ocx in the \Windows\SysWOW64\ dir. you can then run "regsvr32
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Comdlg32.ocx" and it will register the file.

    The \Windows\System32\ dir is for 64 bit dlls only.

    Re: Comdlg32.ocx

    The reason you cannot find a 64 bit of this ocx is because there is none to be found. It is only comdlg32.ocx which you should replae as per the instructions from Ramesh on his page which is the link that I have included in my previous post.

    The link doesn't address what needs to be done on the 64bit platform with a
    32 bit COM program.
