Though the 64-bit controls are installed with our Studio for ActiveX installer, many of our customers have asked us queries on how to manually register our 64-bit ActiveX controls in their 64-bit machines.

This blog provides steps which will help you to register these build manually.

The most important thing to remember while manually registering these bits is that you need to install both 32bit and 64 versions of control on your 64-bit machines.

Also. please note that you need to put the 32-bit version of ActiveX control in the SysWow64 folder and run the regsvr32 (from that folder) to register that version. Put the 64-bit version of in the system32 folder, and run that folders regsvr32 to register.

Registering 32-bit ActiveX Control

  1. Copy the 32-bit control files in C:\Windows\SysWow64 (ie, all files present in the zip folder of the build).
  2. Now run the Command prompt with administrative rights.
  3. Go to C:\Windows\SysWow64 folder using the following command : C:\>cd C:\Windows\SysWow64
  4. Type the following command : C:\Windows\SysWow64>regsvr32 <Controlname.ocx>

Registering 64-bit ActiveX Control

  1. Copy the 64-bit control files in C:\Windows\System32 (ie, all files present in the zip folder of the build).
  2. Now run the Command prompt with administrative rights.
  3. Go to C:\Windows\System32 folder using the following command : C:\>cd C:\Windows\System32
  4. Type the following command : C:\Windows\System32>regsvr32 <Controlname.ocx>
