unable to register the dll/ocx. Regsvr32 failed with exit code 0x3

Gerd Steeger Oct 25, 2015 09:56AM EDT

I am using VB6 and InnoSetup (latest version). Since I try to run my App on my laptop with Win7 and 64 bit file system, Installation fails and Innosetup gives me an error message when I try to register imactx80.ocx. It was working properly before on my 32 bit computer.

What line I have to write in Innosetup in order that I can register this ocx properly?

Regards,
Gerd

Hi,

The error #3 is:
ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND
3 (0x3)
The system cannot find the path specified.

I suspect your issue is that the path you are passing to register the control is invalid for some reason. We use Innosetup as well (Great tool!) and are able to have it register the controls without issues. Also make sure you are including the required C runtime files in your installer.

Thanks for your interest in our products and please let us know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Sean
