Registering MSCOMM32 on a 64-bit operating system
Posted on 2011-03-25
I have a program written in VB6 which works perfectly well on all my development machines which run XP / O2k3 / VB6. However I am trying to get it to run on a system running MS Small Business Server 2008 (64-bit) and am having trouble registering mscomm32.ocx
I have copied the files mscomm32.ocx and mswinsck.ocx from an XP machine. When I run the command "regsvr32.exe mscomm32.ocx" I get the following error message
The module "mscomm32.ocx" may not compatible with the version of Windows that you're running. Check if the module is compatible with an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of regsvr32.exe.
I get an identical message when I try to register mswinsck.ocx
Can anyone advise me how I can register these or obtain versions of these files which will work on this system.
