Can't register mswinsck.ocx on a new Widnows 7 OS


I have a new windows 7 computer that I cannot install my software on.  I am the developer and also wrote the install routine, everything else seems to run fine, but the program that uses mswinsck.ocx does not.

I tried to manually register it using the following steps:

Navigate to Start/All Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt
Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Adminstrator
cd \windows\system32
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx

I get the following error:

The module "mswinsck.ocx" failed to load.

Make sure the binary is stored at the specific path or debut it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.

The specified module could not be found.

However, typing "dir mswinsck.ocx" finds the file . . . . .

Note: I register the other OCX successfully by using the same above command(Manually). I cross check the path(c:\windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx) to confirm the required ocx and it is there .

Try with this
regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx"

If Your System 64 Bit ;
Copy mswinsck.ocx to
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ folder

and then

regsvr32 "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\mswinsck.ocx"
