  • Can the GRAPH32.OCX control be registered on Windows 7 Starter? I have seen some posts saying that it can be registered on the Windows 7. But Starter edition?

  • Hi RM,

    I would reference to this possible solution. Since this forum mainly discuss how to upgrade VB6 project to Visual Studio, I would suggest go to http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us or VB6 forum for support. 


    For graph32.ocx , there are 5 dependency files 
    - gsw32.exe
    - gswdll32.dll
    - olepro32.dll 
    - mfc40.dll
    - msvcrt40.dll
    for gsw32.exe and gswdll32.dll, you can copy both of it and place in %windir%\system32
    but for olepro32.dll , mfc40.dll , msvcrt40.dll , there already exit in %windir%\system32 with newer verion and were fixed permision for "trusted installer" , you must resolve for its permission before /* and backup all of it too or take restoreing point by WIN7 */. Then copy old version that come from <CD>\COMMON\TOOLS\VB\CONTROLS to place at here.
    by these. > regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\graph32.ocx will no problem for system registration.
    Since of MSChart be an official replacement of graph32,It should be a better way ...

    Best regards,
