  • Hi Maralla,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    As far as I see the DSO Framer is a 32bit component. Please check whether your target Platform is “x86” in your solution project. 

    Have a good day,

  • Hi Marala

    We are using the DsoFramer in one of the web applications, it used to work fine with windows XP ,Ms Office 2003, IE7. When we upgraded to windows 7 32 bit with Ms Office 2003 or 2010 and IE8, it does not work even though os is 32 bit and ocx was made to run on x86. I have registered the dsoframer.ocx file with regsvr32 and message came that file was loaded sucessfully.

    Is it possible for you to explain what are the steps you have taken to make dsoframer.ocx to run on windows 7 32 bit box.

    many thanks
