Registering msdatlst.ocx and msdatrep.ocx in Vista

I am just not able to register these in Vista. I have tried switching UAC off and then unregistering / registering using regsvr32 but no dice. This is driving me crazy since nothing seems to work. I wish to use these controls on a VB 6 form. Can someone help? Thanks.

Re: Registering msdatlst.ocx and msdatrep.ocx in Vista

This may help to find the reason why msdatrep.ocx is not registering. Try download, run it and tell it to be associated with .ocx files too. Than you can right mouse click on msdatrep.ocx and say "View Dependencies" - any missing dlls will be in red. This may help to find the reason why regsvr32 is not working.

3. In the programs pane right click on cmd and "run as an Administrator"
4. Put in your credentials for UAC prompt
5. In the command prompt type in "regsvr32 comctl32.ocx" then press ENTER

Using UAC in Windows Vista

Windows Vista has the built-in ability to automatically reduce the potential of security breaches in the system. It does that by automatically enabling a feature called User Account Control (or UAC for short). The UAC forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges.

Although UAC clearly improves the security on Windows Vista, under some scenarios you might want to disable it, for example when giving demos in front of an audience (demos that are not security related, for example). Some home users might be tempted to disable UAC because of the additional mouse clicking it brings into their system, however I urge them not to immediately do so, and try to get used to it instead.
Anyway, if required, you can disable UAC by using one of the following methods:
Method #1 - Using MSCONFIG
  1. Launch MSCONFIG by from the Run menu.
  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
  3. Press the Launch button.
  4. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  5. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
You can re-enable UAC by selecting the "Enable UAC" line and then clicking on the Launch button.
*Recommended: Speed up Vista boot times by reducing the number of programs that load at startup. Control your Vista startup list with this Vista app
Method #2 - Using Regedit
  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  3. Locate the following value (DWORD): EnableLUA and give it a value of 0.
    disable_uac_2.gif Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you're supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.
  4. Close Registry Editor. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
In order to re-enable UAC just change the above value to 1.
Method #3 - Using Group Policy This can be done via Local Group Policy or via Active Directory-based GPO, which is much more suited for large networks where one would like to disable UAC for many computers at once.
If using Local Group Policy you'll need to open the Group Policy Editor (Start > Run > gpedit.msc) from your Vista computer.
If using in AD-based GPO, open Group Policy Management Console (Start > Run > gpmc.msc) from a Vista computer that is a member of the domain. In the GPMC window, browse to the required GPO that is linked to the OU or domain where the Vista computers are located, then edit it.
  1. In the Group Policy Editor window, browse to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.
  2. In the right pane scroll to find the User Access Control policies (they're down at the bottom of the window). You need to configure the following policies:disable_uac_gpo_2.gif
  3. You'll need to reboot your computers.
Method #4 - Using Control Panel
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
  3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
  4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
  5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
  6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
  7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.

I can't get rid of the UAC when I launch Firefox. I have to type my password 3 or 4 times so the prompt disappears. I'm using Vista Home Basic Edition What to do ?

Set to OFF the UAC for each session simply go to START>>RUN>>msconfig when it comes up select the Tools tab, scroll down until you see Disable UAC, well disable it reboot and that pesky, yet helpful, UAC will be gone...

How to register ocx on vista

[Solution # 1]
Drag and drop it onto regsvr32.exe in Windows\system32 folder. Make a shortcut for regsvr32.exe in the same folder the OCX is in and drag and drop it that way

[Solution # 2] Just run cmd.exe as administrator and try again. This is the key.

Here, step by step:

1. find the folder of cmd: it is usually on C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
2. Do right click over cmd.exe and click on "run as Administrator"
3. now just use regsvr32.exe as you used to do!

For example, to register most Blackd Proxy ocxs, you might need to type this in "Administrator" cmd:

regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\richtx32.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\comdlg32.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\msflxgrd.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\msinet.ocx
regsvr32.exe C:\windows\system32\comctl32.ocx

A side result for Visual Basic 6.0 users: this seems to be the way to use components in Windows Vista properly. Just register the components of your proyect with "Administrator" cmd before adding them to your proyect (or before opening a proyect that already had such components)

[Solution # 3]
use this in command line

REGSVR32 /V then ur ocx or dll name

[Solution # 4]
right-clicking the batch file and selecting 
'run as administrator'.


Good luck

Remove secure mode in Windows Vista Ultimate

Note: Disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system, so do it at your own risk.
here is how you can do it.
Open up Control Panel, and type in "UAC" into the search box. You'll see a link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off":
On the next screen you should uncheck the box for "Use User Account Control (UAC)", and then click on the OK button

You'll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect, but you should be all done with annoying prompts.

Error with Vista

If you are using any other operating system than Vista please see this article:

This error indicates that a file is not correctly installed on your system. In some cases it may be correctly installed for all standard users but not for the "Administrator" account, and you may only see this error when selecting "Run as Administrator".

The built in Administrator account is not intended to be used as a user account. It is very secure and will not allow program components to be registered. Instead you should create an account with administrative rights, and use it instead of the built in Administrative account. This will help solve runtime error 339/429 on our software, and lots of other software that you may install in the future. If you do not want to create a standard user account (not recommended) you can follow the instructions below:

If the problem started suddenly then a reinstall may fix it. If not, follow the directions below to register each file that is producing the error. You generally will only have to repeat the instructions 3 or 4 times:

Click start
In the search box type "cmd" without the quotes
When CMD.exe appears above the search box right click it and select "Run As Administrator". This will open a command prompt with admin rights.
Repeat the following for each file that is causing this error, replacing [filename] with the actual name of the file that is causing problems:

    -Type "regsvr32 [filename] /u" without the quotes
    -You will receive a prompt saying the file has been unregistered. Click OK.
    -Type "regsvr32 [filename]" (shortcut: press your UP ARROW and delete /u)
    -You will receive a prompt saying the file has been successfully registered.
    try this

    Go to Start
    click Run
type in cmd
press enter

type in the black screen


Press enter
it will come back the c: prompt
Restart your PC

1)error message upon clicking on an .exe/it says my Msinit.ocx is wrong/more details ff; 2) what program do I need if i wish to open a .ppl thingey

What was the error message, also you are stating only problems, not questions, please be more specific into what you want to do so people can help you.

the only solution I can think of for the OCX error is to re-register it

Go to 'Start' -> 'Run', type (or copy/paste from here) 'regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\MSINET.OCX' and press Enter (a message box normally appears containing 'DllRegisterServer in C:\Windows\System32\MSINET.OCX succeeded.')

Also you might have to update your .net frameworks (check microsoft update.

I went to the bridge barron site and only found this

please link to the PPL file.
