3rd party OCX's will not register in Windows XP SP2
Posted on 2004-10-03
I have written and rely upon a few Visual Basic 5.0 programs which use third party OCX's, e.g. Crescent Quikpak and others. After installing Windows XP SP2 on new machines, those OCX's will not register when I run the installation routines for my programs.
I have tried to register the OCS's manually (such as REGSVR32 CSCMD32.OCX) with no success. XP reports failiure to register.
After I uninstall XP SP2, the problem ends and my installation program registers the OCX's with no problem.
I assume that there is some sort of "security' feature in XP SP2 that comes into play. Does anyone know of a workaround that would allow me to use SP2 with this problem?
