Cannot register comdlg32.ocx

While logged in as an administrator I try to register comdlg32.ocx in Windows 7 Pro and always get error code 0x8002801c.  This is true if when using the Command Prompt method using regsvr32.  I specifically opened the command prompt as administrator.

I realize that this is probably repeating what you have done but it covers the steps for both 32 bit and 64 bit and fully states the command line instructions.

The only difference here is turning UAC off. I will check that and try again.

This is a opposed to opening the command prompt as administrator? Long live the DOS prompt!!!

What is the exact syntax? When I run this in the command window I get the message that run is an invalid command

run as /user:administrator regsvr32 c:\Windows\SysWOW64\comdlg32.ocx

Another way to run the cmd prompt as administrator....

windows key -------> Search Programs and files --------> type: cmd ------->press crtl+shift+enter -------> click Yes.

Then navigate to the C:\Windows\SysWoW64\
Type:
regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx

Open in new window

It wants quotes around the command
runas /user:administrator "regsvr32 c:\Windows\SysWOW64\comdlg32.ocx"

Thanks for the help.
