Can't copy mscal.ocx file in Windows\system32

Hi Experts,

I need advice to copy mscal.ocx file in Windows\system32. I've managed to insert and registered this file in 5 PCs, but for some reason I'm having with 2 PCs. These 2 PCs prompt warning as "Access is Denied".

Please guide me how to overcome this.

right click on the file.. and uncheck read only and rename the file then copy the new one..
if that doesnt work then the file is being used by the machine and you can reboot and do it in safe mode..

Hi,

Rename the file? Let say I name it as "CAL.OCX", should I need to change the registry  as well  from "regsvr32 mscal.ocx" to regsvr32cal.ocx?

filename.ocx to filename.old.ocx

then copy the new file

then using command prompt do

regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\filename.ocx

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

I think I need to liaise with our IT department to allow me to copy this file into Windows/system. When I try to copy this it shows need admin right. If you have other method to override this, then Ill try to do that if not I just get their help.
