Your setup needs to "Run-As" an administrator. Simply logging on as an
administrator will fail.

Regsvr32 can also be run as an administrator. Enter regsvr32 and filename in the
"Start Search" box and then use Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter.

I'm sure someone has posted about this before, but when I do a search I get
all kinds of information on how to register using regsvr32 rather than what
I need.

Problem: Although my installation program puts the OCX's in the right places
(say the \system32 directory), it seems to have a problem registering the
program under VISTA.

My apps are complaining that one of my OCX's is not registered. To fix this,
I have to have the customer run regsvr32 as an Administrator under CMD
window. That's just not a good thing to have your customers doing all that.

What must I do within my installation or code in order for them to register
these OCXs correctly under VISTA? Is there an easy fix? My installation
program is InnoSetup, by the way.

Thanks.
