OS: Win 7 Professional x64

Running with local Administrator user account, registering of c:\windows\system32\tdc.ocx produces the above error whereas registering of: c:\windows\system32\msdxm.ocx completes successfully.

Tried following several articles over the net but with no avail.

tdc is a control used in Visual Basic applications. Is the application you are trying to install incompatible with Windows 7 64-bit?

You might try updating Windows 7. Do you have SP1 installed? If not, download it and install it.

Also, you might try running System File Checker. Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and a the command prompt, run SFC /SCANNOW . Allow to complete and restart.

There are repair installs you can use, but let's see if the above two help.

First create a batch of the list of files that needs to be registred .

Then click start and paste  %windir%\SysWoW64\cmd.exe

Right click on cmd.exe and run as administrator...now browse to the batch file via this cmd window and execute the batch file.

I managed to solve it by re-applying security permissions on hive CLASSES_ROOT in regedit and propagate it to all child objects.
