DllRegisterServer error code 0x8002801c while trying to register mscomct2.ocx

    Question

  • system: Win7/64 Pro

    computer: HP xw4600

    problem:

    this is an MSAccess(MSOffice7) question. i am trying to upgrade a database i am running from a Drobo through our network (so it has a \\drobo....etc address) and getting an error message stating MSCOMCT2.OCX failed to register. after reading the forums regarding this problem learned i need to register the OCX. cannot do it under cmd, because that does not support the path i need (UNC path????), so i am doing it under "run". getting an error message that the OCX loaded but DllRegisterServer returned an error code 0x8002801c.

    i understand i need to run under Admin (and i am Admin on this computer), but somehow Win7 doesn't know it. There is no other user registered on this computer (other than the disabled "Guest").

     

    how do i resolve this issue?

    thanks

    I don't think that you can register an OCX from a UNC path.

  • I'm having the same problem.  I'm trying to fix a problem with Internet Explorer ("Find on This Page" does not work) by running the following:

    regsvr32 oleacc.dll

    The fix was recommended by the following site:

    http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/fix-find-on-this-page-does-not-work-in-internet-explorer-8/

    I get the same error and my problem isn't fixed.  I'm using Windows 7 Starter and I'm the only used (aka Admin)

  • Hi there

    I also was facing the same problem, I got solution and it is working for me, try at once

    click start>>click All Programs>>click accessories>>right click on 'command prompt'>>click run as administrator>> change the folder to the 'mscomct2.ocx' containing folder>>type 'regsvr32.exe mscomct2.ocx' and relax

    Regards

    Piyush
