I am getting runtime error while trying to activate full version online. Screenshot with error message is show below. How to fix this error?


1.Download COMCTL32.OCX.

2.Copy the file to system folder that is WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory on your C: drive (for Windows NT and 2000: \WINNT\system32). the command prompt by going to start->run.(If you are using Vista or windows 7 run the command prompt as adminstrator by going to start->run(right click and run as administrator)

4.According to your Operating System, type the following command to register this library file:

Windows NT or 2000: regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\COMCTL32.OCX

Windows XP: regsvr32 \windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX

Windows Vista: regsvr32 \windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX

* Please note that there is a SPACE after "regsvr32" and before the rest of the command.

5.You should see a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded"

For windows 7:

Step 1: Re-register the component.

Verify if comctl32.ocx is in C:\windows\system32 folder. If you, you may try re-registering the file.

1. Go to start and type cmd.
2. Right-Click on cmd and select ?Run as Administrator?.
3. Type regsvr32 comctl32.ocx and press Enter.

If successful you should get a popup saying "DllregisterServer in comscl32.ocx succeeded"

Step 2: Un-install and reinstall the software.

Re-installing helps in installing the missing component. Do this as a last resort.

For your reference: Uninstall or change a program

Alternatively, you can follow the same steps as that of other Windows Operating Systems for Windows 7 also. However, MS recommends the steps given above for Windows 7.
