using regsvr32.exe

I need to properly register winsck.ocx, I´ve heard that some programs like ActiveX control pack has that .ocx and that it installs it for you but it has not worked for me, and I dont want activeX anyways.... but using the regsrv32.exe that is in the windows\system from START then RUN and typing the the path of the regsvr32 and the path of the .ocx file (which should be copied in the system directory)is supposed to work, but... I get an error message or a message that says I need to use one of the four additional commands (like /i for install or /u for un-install) they dont seem to work either, can someone tell me how to properly register winsck.ocx please???

It's best if you install the Active-X developers pack (its only a few megs).  It not only has the winsock.dll file you need for all your VB based internet applications, it also has some other nice files you need to have when writing your own.

try this
copy regsvr32.exe to the folder where the file you want to register is.
then regsvr32 /i /s /n winsck.ocx
make sure the file you are registering exist in the folder.
I do not find that file on my system :). winsck.ocx

Hi istal...
the regsvr32.exe is in the windows\system dir. and the winsck.ocx is there also (it has to be) and no, its not part of win95. I tried using the regsvr32 /i /s /n winsck.ocx as you advised and this time I didn´t even get an error message and the utilities that need that file still give me the same error "cant load (or register) custom control winscks.ocx.
Well, come to think about it, maybe i should re-boot, so I´ll let you know :).

You need to run regsvr32.exe from DOS.

1. exit to dos.
2. type regsvr32 winsck.ocx

That is all.

I thought you were doing from DOS. not WINDOWS, you did not clear that. you needed to do it from DOS, not a WINDOWS DOS.

a111, its the same thing, but i tried and nothing.
since this is in my system folder, maybe i should just try to reboot, I´ve been on-line since i made the question.

No go, still unregistered, but thanks any ways, if you have any further recomendations besides down loading a 5 or 6.xxx mgs program that will resolve the problem I´d really appreciated :)

Try REGOCX32.EXE
download it from
http://www.hili.com/~shay/regocx32.exe

it is for some ocx that are not willing to register with regsvr32.
if it will work for you let me know.

ASTOR as you said before you did not want the ActiveX package and you did not want that as answer.
