Registering an OCX

Building an installer for a VB6 legacy program. Four exe files, and a number of auxiliary txt and xls files. And one OCX.

Don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on an installer creator.

It occurred to me that the only real issue is registering that OCX on OS’s past XL.

Question: Can the OCX be registered manually? I don’t want to screw up the registry.

You can try to register it (them) with regsvr32.

Regsvr32 [/u] [/s] <OCX File Name>

Please see this Microsoft Support article.

I hope this works for you. It should not screw up the registry.
