I used the Setup Wizard to create my Setup distribution.  I created both on
diskette and in a directory on the hard drive.  I ran the setup on 3
different
PCs (all running Windows95).  2 of the 3 were successful;however, I
received
the following errors during the "Setup is updating your system" phase:

      An error occurred while registering the file
      C:\Windows\System\MFC40.DLL

      An error occurred while registering the file
      C:\Windows\System\TABCTL32.OCX

      An error occurred while registering the file
      C:\Windows\System\CRYSTL32.OCX

Can anyone help or at least give me some ideas of what to try?

Thanks!!!

Make sure that you include MSVCIRT.DLL in your setup.  I had this same problem and it was solved by copying this DLL to the machine that had the problem and then doing a:

REGSVR32 TABCTL32.OCX

etc...

I believe if you run REGSVR32 on any OCX right now it will fail because it needs the MSVCIRT.DLL.
