Use the redistributable file regsvr32.exe in your msdev\bin directory. Just execute it with the
parameter of the file to register:

  regsvr32.exe winsock.ocx
  regsvr32.exe comctl32.ocx

To unregister, use

  regsvr32.exe /u winsock.ocx
  regsvr32.exe /u comctl32.ocx

The source code of regsvr32.exe should be provided with your MSVC distribution. Search
the CD for regsvr32.mdp.

Perhaps your files could also be corrupted - regsvr32.exe should show a message in this case.

Thanks much. It worked perfectly. Found another way to register the file in regsrv32.exe too. Just drag and drop the .ocx onto the exe file and no dos prompt needed.... Thanks again
