Registering files in Vista


Apparently during installation of an application on Vista some files were not registered. "Component 'Vsocx6.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

How do you register missing components for 32 and 64 bit Vista?

Thank you. I tried it and it gives me this error:
The module "Vsocx6.ocs" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x8002009.
For more information about this problem, search online using the error code as search term.
So I will do, too.
Any more ideas?
Thank you.
This MS article tells about regsvr32 error message:
Explanation of Regsvr32 usage and error messages

I'm still searching for the meaning of the hexadecimal error code you got.  But one thing:  if you are registering a 64-bit file, then did you run the version in the System32 folder?  Also, did you try running it from a CMD prompt which has been elevated  (right click and select Run as Administrator)?

Got pulled to do something different.
No. I did not run it as elevated. Should try that when the suer comes back tomrrow and yes, I run it in the System32 folder.
Sorry and Thank you.
