    Replacing MSCOMCTL.OCX:

    SOLUTION:

    In order to fix this problem, you'll need to set up and register the library file.

    download the file you are missing and manually register it yourself. Here's how to do it:
    Download MSCOMCTL.OCX .


    Back up your current copy of MSCOMCTL.OCX and copy the new version to the same file location. This file should be located in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory on your C: drive (for Windows NT and 2000: \WINNT\system32).


    Using your mouse, click on the "Start" button and then click on "Run".


    According to your Operating System, type the following command to register this library file:

    Windows 95, 98, or Me:
    regsvr32 \windows\system\MSCOMCTL.OCX

    Windows NT or 2000:
    regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\MSCOMCTL.OCX

    Windows XP:
    regsvr32 \windows\system32\MSCOMCTL.OCX


    You should see a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded"

    If you are getting an error telling you that the file is missing, then you are not typing the command in correctly. You will need to type it in *exactly* as as shown above for your operating system.

    * Please note that there is a SPACE after "regsvr32" and before the rest of the command.

    You should probably copy and paste the command so that you are unable to mistype it.

    Yep, that was my bad, didn't know and or even check if the pre-check util had any required files to run, especially under W7. I have just fixed the installer for take care of this issue now and probably need to get the AppStore one updated to keep from anyone else having this same issue.

    To add to the above post, for Windows 7, the above stuff didn't work for me (nor did adding VB6). If you're like me and you're still having troubles registering it, then try the following:

    - Open notepad and type "regsvr32 C:\Windows\system\MSCOMCTL.OCX" without the quotes.

    - Save this as a bat file from notepad by doing a "save as"...In the "Save as type" it defaults to "Text Documents (*.txt) just choose the "All Files (*.*)" from the drop menu...Name the file anything you want {Filename.bat) but must have .bat after it

    - Then Right click on your new bat file and in the menu choose the RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR

    It should then tell you that it registered successfully and you can delete the bat file.

    Shouldn't that be "regsvr32 C:\Windows\system32\MSCOMCTL.OCX" if you are using Win7 ? I seem to recall that being the directory I used and it worked for me.

    something interesting happened today. System ran out of space and DFx seems to have lost its settings. Only buttons that work are the ones in the bottom panel.
    Haven't re-installed yet so if this is of interest and any logs are needed let me know

    Hi John, Enforcer,

    Just to give a quick feedback on the biometric system. I manage to get something working.

    I have also set up a separate thread for this project so I stop cluttering up the DFX skin thread.

    Thanks for your help again,

    Last night I reinstalled my system from ground up. I Installed Win7 + all the updates and so on. Then I installed RR and right after that DFX5.1. When I installed RR and DFX I did not change anything in the setup that is conected to where the files are put. Then I went in RR config and told the system what radio I had, where my music files are and so on. When I started DFX I asked the system to "rescan the music database" but nothing happend. So I started to look around. In my RR config program evrything was right. For some reason I decided to look manually in my RR.ini file and that was a little bit strange. No information was there that I thougt I just had put in there. So I started to dig around. The RR.ini file that I just had opened was in \my documents\Riderunner\config\rr.ini and that was empty. Then I looked in \Program files\Riderunner\ and there I found another RR.ini file and in that file I found all of my settings. That actually explained another problem that I had earlier and had allready talked about in previous thread, in that thread I talked about that it looked liked that DFX had wiped out all of my settings in RR.ini.
    Any ideas??

    there is a known issue with the dfx5 installer... it will not install properlly on fresh installs with rr 7/1 ->
    to temp solve this... just download the legacy to profile application i posted in a sticky
    run it, then delete the rr.ini in program files\riderunner
    oh and reregister dfx5.dll in the MOVED skin folder....
    (other wise... wait for the dfx5 team to post a fixed installer)
    -Thanks
