Hi Experts,

I have developed a setup for an application. The problem I am facing is that first time when i install the setup at a fresh machine it is working fine. But after uninstallation and then while reinstalling the same setup, it gives me error 339 (OCX not self registered).

Is there any way that I can forcefully uninstall the ocx files. Below are the ocx files / Components which i am using for my application.

1. Flexgrid 8.0  (VSflex.ocx)
2. msFlxgrd.ocx
3. Flash.ocx

I know that in advance version of installshield we can forcefully uninstall the ocx files but is there any way that we can do the same in 6.1.

I assume that you guys must have face the similar problem and some one has the solution for this. I know that i can request the user to register the ocx mannually by explaining him through a readme.txt file. But my users are not advance level users. I donot mind to give extra points for this solution. Please be fast. I need the answer / help very quickly.

Regards,

You have to install the program along with all it's dependancies on the other machine. This includes copying then _registering_ all the OCXs, DLLs, etc...

Some times I back, I faced this error and solved this problem by creating my setup.exe using Innosetup.

You could try INNO setup which can be found on www.jrsoftware.org . There are VBP file parsers which will create a basic INNO script file.

I am sure using Inno, you wont face problem again.

Good Luck
