So I've been trying to register this file, but I've have been unable to do so.

I move this file into system32, then in cmd as an Admin, I type in "regsvr32 \Windows\System32\COMDLG32.OCX" and I come up with this error:

Quote:
The module "\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.
I've found solutions to this for XP and previous OS, but I can't find anything for Vista64. Please help.

I think the syntax of your path statement is wrong.
regsvr32 \Windows\System32\COMDLG32.OCX

Should read "regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\comdlg32.ocx"
or
regsvr32 %Systemroot%\System32\comdlg32.ocx

I still get the same error.

I tried both methods that you've given me and they get the same results.

I still find it interesting that the file name is COMDLG32, yet you said it was a 64 bit ocx file. Are you 100 percent sure it's a 64bit file?

Sorry, I missed the mention of it being an x64 driver.

There was/ is an XP x64 OS, but previous OS'??

Is it an x64 driver? Please post screenshot of its details and provide a download link for it/ its product.

Hi, no it's a 32 bit app dll no 64 bit version available you might still get it registered just need to place a copy of the Comdlg32.ocx in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ dir

Then run:-

Code:
regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Comdlg32.ocx

Oh.

Um, I guess when you said driver, I thought OS.

Well, jenae had the solution.
I'm sorry for the confusion.
Thanks for the help anyways, though.
