Several products automatically
install OLE Controls on your system, for example Microsoft Visual
Basic 4.0 and Microsoft Office. Microsoft has some tools to
register OLE Controls on your system.
OLE Controls are registered on
your system in two ways:
||The control is delivered with a registration database file (for
example mycontrol.reg). To register these type of controls you need
to import this file into your registry. You can do this by starting
the registry (REGEDIT.EXE) and importing the file, or by
double-clicking the file in the explorer.
||The control has self-registration capabilities. These controls
have to be registered by using utilities supplied by Microsoft. An
example of such a utility is REGSVR32.EXE (part of the Win32 SDK,
Visual C++ 4.0 and Visual Basic 4.0). You can use a DOS box and
type "regsvr32 mycontrol.ocx" to register the control.
