I am trying to install ICON COOL'S :Graphics Converter and when I try to execute the program i get the error message:
                comct232.ocx or one of it's dependencies not completely registered or a file is missing or is invalid.
I have downloaded the file and put it into the directory but to no avail. Where do I go from here?

    From an elevated (RUNAS Administrator) command prompt type:

    "regsvr32 comct232.ocx"

    Assisted Solution


    Start menu>All Programs>Accessories> right click "Command Prompt" and choose "Run as administrator". Now, type regsvr32 comct232.ocx

    I hope this will solve your problem. If it didn't help copy that file to window\system32 and repeat the previous procedure.

    Open the OCX file in Dependency Walker (, then look for any files that it claims are missing.  Are you sure that this program does not have any extra "support packs" that might need to be loaded?  If the OCX file is missing DLL files, you really need to match up the same versions it was linked against.

    Have you tried running the program as an administrator (RUNAS)?

    Unfortunately, I checked the web site ( and I can find no list of requirements for what the program will run under.  Did you purchase this product?  If so, have you tried their tech support?

    You should probably talk to a moderator then.  In the mean time, is this a demo or a purchased product?  If the later, the vendor might be able to verify that this software will work on Vista or not, as well as send you an addon pack.
