I have 2 aviation programs which I used on my XP machine. I installed them on my new Win 7 machine and they ran just fine.
Suddenly when I try to run them both, I get this error message : "Component 'VSOCX32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid."
I uninstalled both programs and attempted to reinstall. I now get the same message while trying to install. I have tried running the installers in compatabilty mode and run as administrator,to no avail. I renamed the .ocx in question in the SysWOW64 folder ,and the installer for the programs simply inserts a copy of the .ocx into SysWOW64 but can not register same. I tried to register VSOCX.OCX using regsvr only to get this error messaqe: The module "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\VSOCX332.OCX" failed to load. The same error message appears when I try to deregister the .OCX
I have also tried to install in Safe mode.
I can get along without the 2 programs, but would prefer to be able to use them. I am open to suggestions.
