SETUP PROBLEM - REGISTERING OCX

I have some controls that are in Data Widgets 2.0 . When I run the setup program generated by setup wizard, I get an error saying that SSDATB32.ocx could't be registered.

At first this only happens in certain W95 versions, but after running the fixes from Microsoft the problem persists.

In some computers it works, in others it doesn't.

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks in advanced (fast please)

Try to self register the ocx first.  If that doesn't work, use window's quickviewer to check for any files that may need to be on the system that the ssdatb32.ocx depends on.  There should be a list about half-way down the quickviewer page and should have such things as kernel or user32.  You must make sure all those files are on the system and registered before you can register the ssdatb32.ocx.  Sounds to me like this is the problem because maybe the fixes from Microsoft are removing files that once were there or are adding the same file, name wise, but different in functionality.  If the latter is the case, you'll have to change your ssdatb32.ocx to work with the changed dependent files or you might have to just rebuild it with the new dependent files on the system.

Thanks ChrisH, you shoot on the fly. There was missing MFC42.dll,
I found this dependence with Quickview as you said. When the file was already in the computer, no error ocurred.

The problem was nothing to do with W95 versions.

Thanks again
