Hi Guys,

Require your advice to troubleshoot the error which I am getting while registering some DLLs/OCX files in my system.

* I pasted my ocx in the system 32 folder.
* Then I am trying to register using
regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\xxxx.OCX

I am getting the below error.

The module xxxx.OCX was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code Ox8000ffff.
For more information about this problem, search online using
the error code as a search term.

I searched in google but not find any useful link about this specific error(Ox8000ffff) while registering OCX.

Please advise.

Hey Wes Aday,
That error code is different. that is "0x80070005". That says us to RUN as ADMIN.
Mine error is : " Ox8000ffff ".

OCX control are depending upon type of operating system.
Whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit.
If the OCX is made to work with 32 bit, Then it will work only on 32 bit OS.
