Hello,
in this forum i found the below quoted post which exactly describes my problem. However the soulution given does not help in my case.
In a Foxpro9 installation under W10pro64 I need the DayView.ocx which i copied to System32 and Syswow64.
On one system the manual regsvr32 procedure works on another it does not.
Thanks for help and here the old question:

"In a command prompt I am running this line:  

C:\Windows\System32> regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\ImageViewer2.OCX

I get the following error:

RegSvr32
The Module "C:\Windows\System32\ImageViewer2.OCX" failed to load.
Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.  
The Specified module could not be found.  

This is a new 64 bit, Win7 laptop.  The OCX file has been transferred from a 64 bit Win 7 system it succesfully installed on.  I am logged in as Administrator and running cmd as Administrator.  I have a VFP app that relies on this OCX to run. "
