    I an running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. I have just had to reinstall following a nasty problem, and have been slowly putting all the applications I need back.
    One application that I do need installed happily (and worked just fine previously), but when I came to run it I got:
    Run-time error '339': Component 'VSOCX6.OCX' or one of its dependencies is not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.
    I have looked at a previous thread here and followed the instruction on how to register the file. However when I run 'regsvr32 c:\Windows\system32\vsocx6.ocx' I then get the error 'The module c:\Windows\system32\vsocx6.ocx' was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x800200009.'
    i have looked at the VideoSoft web site and downloaded their codecs but, again, that seems to have made no difference.
    Can someone help me out here? As I said the program concerned was working happily from XP to 7 and multiple reinstalls of OS. Why a problem now?

    That can occur if you don't run the command as Administrator.

    Steps:

    Start> Computer> Local Disk (c:)> Windows> System32> Scroll down to CMD.exe, right click and 'Run as Administrator'

    Now you should find the regsvr32 command will register the ocx file successfully if you try it again.

    I found that out with a further search on the error number. However when it did work I also had to do the same for the following files as well:
    mhcal32.ocx, mhlist32.ocx, mhclck32.ocx and vslight6.ocx.
    After all these, the application started up.
    The question remains: just what happened to cause these files not to be registered? Or something?
