you can register OCX files by using the regsvr32.exe utility.
Copy the ocx file into c:\windows\system and then from a dos prompt type cd c:\windows\system
then type regsvr32 control.ocx

This will register that ocx file.

This is usually due to an older version of the files ole32.dll
and oleaut32.dll.
One way to get the latest versions of these files is to install IE4.0
Check the version of ole32.dll. If it's 2.x, then it's old.
If it's 4.x then this is not the problem.

This could also be caused by dependencies on files that have not yet been copied to the system. For example, if your OCX depends on ABC.DLL and ABC.DLL was not copied to the system yet, you'll get this problem.

What Install program are you using?
