That stuff is dead and gone. If it will not register manually, then it is not going to work.

You need to upgrade the application.

Windows 7 is now long in the tooth, Windows 8.1 is current and Windows 10 is out soon, so the situation will just get worse.

You should try to copy the flatbtn2.ocx file from an old system and register it.

thanks i already do that but same problem
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
You may have to get an XP Pro virtual machine to run the application. Windows 7 has XP Mode but Windows 8 and 10 do not. So you would need to get a virtualizer (VMware Workstation or like) and run the application in a virtual machine. Well treated, virtual machines can live forever and move to new host machines.

thanks virtualize is a considering Idea But i hope to find solution for it

I agree with John on this, your best guess would be XP Mode on Win7 prof.

Knowing that this is not your preferred solution but you may have no choice here. Did you try the legacy application in XP Mode, at least to see if that is working for you?
dou you have MSVBVM50.DLL installed on that machine?
installing this might help:
