HTML.OCX Not Recognized
Posted on 1997-06-04
Windows 95 v4.00.950.B
Computer: 486DX4-100 with 32 megs and 3.2 gig HD
BIOS: Award (not PnP)
When I recently installed Norton's for Win95 and run the Registry Editor, I get a message at start up that HTML.OCX is not found or is corrupt. I confirmed that HTML.OCX is indeed present in WINDOWS\SYSTEM and even replaced it with a copy from a machine where this problem does not happen.
Norton's Registry Editor loads but I can't see the various "Advisor" files that are in HTML format.
Looking at the registry with REGEDIT, the calls to HTML.OCX appear to be valid (ie correct path).
Norton's suggests running Win95 SETUP to correct the problem, but I have the full install CD and this would wipe out all of my shortcuts, installed software, etc. and I don't want to go through all of that mess. Been there, done that!
How can this be fixed without needing to run SETUP again?
