I have written a program that I have installed on 150+ networked computers already.  My delima is that I need to register a new OCX to each machine. I don't want to re-install the app on all the machines. Is there a way to register the OCX through code?

Consider using Shell command as follows:
You need to know the path of regsvr32.exe on your computer, hence:
Shell "Regsvr32.exe File.OCX"
This will register OCX for you.
