  • What is this product - normally 3rd party components are registered as part of an setup/installer package.    This handles everything and wouldnt require you to do anything except add the reference to the component in the project.

    As this is an ActiveX component - it does require registering using Regsvr32 but potentially there could be other reasons why this doesnt work - maybe other items also need to be registered for this component to work.   Think about if Component B implements functionality but also uses Component A to achieve some of this.

    If you tried registering Component B without Component A already being registered then you'd run into problems - theres a dependency.   These dependencies are why many 3rd party providers use setup programs to ensure all dependencies are installed in correct order for successful install.

    When you tried regsvr32 - it gave you nothing - can you be more specific.
