Visual Studio 2008 & richtx32.ocx Compatibility issues Windows 7 RC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been working on a project in my spare time for about 2 years now upgrading VS2005 to VS2008 when it became available to me and everything has been working great until i installed windows 7 rc x64. Now when i load the project everything loads fine, even the form containing the rich text control. FYI there is a very good reason why i am using such an old ocx rather than newer richtext control. either way when i try to play the project i get unregistered control errors everytime but only for that form. i restarted and went back into vista ult. x64 and played the same project and it works great.

    Also to save confusion i have transfered the needed file(s) to the system32 dir on the windows drive i have also registered them to the system.

    any kind of help would be great :)

  • Hi,

    Try Checking out the version of the ocx being used. Try using the new version of ocx instead of old version. Unregister any other version of that ocx and register the correct one on (in the system32 folder).  

    register the RichTx32.ocx module using the following command (from Start, Run dialog):

    regsvr32.exe %systemroot%\system32\RICHTX32.OCX

    You should see the message DllRegisterServer in C:\WINDOWS\system32\RICHTX32.OCX succeeded. after running the above command.

    or just go straight to the support page, here is the link.
