I can register an OCX file in Windows 7 x64 without incident but with Windows 7 x32 I get a p-up that says "DllRegisterServer failed with error code: 0x80004005. What gives???

    Question

  • Hey yeah.  not much else to say.  The title says it all.

    I'm trying to register an OCX file that my video editing application requires to work properly.

    I'm using a  Registry (Regsvr32 and Regsvr64) tool to Register DLL/OCX files.  Both bit Registry tools work fine. I can Register any DLL or OCX file with Windows 7 x64 and everything goes smoothly.

    But, when in Windows 7 x32, again, no problem with merging the Regsvr32 tool, but when I go to register the OCX file message says it was loaded but the DllRegisterServer failed with error: 0x80004005.

    Why does everything work in Windows 7 RC 7100 x64 but not in Windows 7 RC 7100 x32???

    My Video Editing software was working fine a few days ago in Windows 7 x64.  Tried using it this morning....couldn't load the .mpg video clip.  Just stood there looking stupid like it does in the 32-bit version of Windows 7.

    I was hoping the x64 version of Windows 7 RC 7100 was going to make a decent run against my XP Pro SP3 setup. When I was able to register the required .ocx file for the video editing application, I thought "cool".  I made a TV recording then used the Video Editor to edit it and it worked fine.  Earlier this morinng I made another TV recording, went to go edit it and the video editing application couldn't load the .mpg file at all.  This problem just annihilated any chance of me ever purchasing Windows 7, 32 or 64-bit.

  • I have tried using the elevated Command Prompt>regsvr32 suchandsuch.ocx.  Got a popup that the module was loaded.  The DllRegisterServer failed with error: 0x80004005.

    I know I probably need to use the binary name of the .ocx file.  Don't have a clue as to finding out what that is, unless it's all those number associated with the registry values.

    Any help out there?

  • DavidLeeDavis,

    Unfortunately, virtually all of the documentation I could find on this issue pointed to the problem being fixed by running an elevated Command Prompt. Is this Microsoft Knowledge Base article of any help?

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Unfortunately, my issue isn't related to ISS (other than by error number - which I believe is an "Access denied" related error); that is what that KB article is refering to.

    It's really weird that I don't have the same problems with the x64 version of Windows 7.  After merging my customized Regsver64 tweaker I can register the same exact .ocx file without any problems and the video editing application works surprisingly well...just about as good as it did in XP Pro x32.  With Windows 7 x32....totally different story.  Get the errors during the attempts to register the .ocx file, plus, the video editing software doesn't work worth a hoo haa.

  • Please try to open "cmd" with administrator privilege, and then run regsvr32 command in it.

    If you had read the second post to this thread you would have seen that I had already done that.

  • I see this is an old thread, but maybe it will help someone passing by =)

    Put you *.OCX file into C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ then register with regsvr32 throu elevated command prompt. (Cmd->Run as administrator).

    At least this worked for me.
