# Can't register mscomct2.ocx for VB6 app on Windows 7

I transferred a crashed computer backup to a new Windows 7 system. The VB app transferred well but one ActiveX component is not registered. I tried to regsvr32 it as an administrator in the command prompt window and it fails. How can I get it registered?

You have to use the 32-bit version of regsvr32.

E.g.  c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32 c:\path\to\mscomct2.ocx
