  1. COMDLG32.OCX missing


    Hi, I was trying to run a program, but it says that COMDLG32.OCX is missing.

    Looking for answers, I couldn't find one that solves the issue as it is missing from SysWOW64 and Sys32 as trying to register the file results in a message saying it can't be found and it isn't considered an integrity violation SFC /scannow catches.

    Some answers are redirected to grabbing comctl32.ocx from Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Common Controls, but again, it's comdlg32ocx, not comctl32.ocx

    I will say there is a COMDLG32.DLL, but the program calls for COMDLG32.OCX.


    Anyways, is there any way I can obtain or install the file? it doesn't appear to be included with Windows 7/8.1/10 from what I've looked up.

    :)

  2. comdlg32.ocx Help

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the frustration when things don't work as expected.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps.

    When you install software that uses the comdlg32.ocx, the software should automatically register the file for you. In some cases your OCX file may not register properly, and as a result, will provide a "comdlg32.ocx not registered" error. Fortunately,
    you can use a built-in utility called "Microsoft Register Server" (regsvr32.exe) to re-register your comdlg32.ocx file.

    How to re-register comdlg32.ocx from an elevated command prompt (Windows 10).

    • Click the Start button.
    • Type "command" in the search box... DO NOT hit
      ENTER yet!
    • While holding CTRL-Shift on your keyboard, hit
      ENTER
      .
    • You will be prompted with a permission dialog box.
    • Click Yes.
    • Type the following command: regsvr32 /u comdlg32.ocx.
    • Hit ENTER. This will UN-REGISTER your file.
    • Type the following command: regsvr32 /i comdlg32.ocx.
    • Hit ENTER. This will RE-REGISTER your file.
    • Close the command prompt window.
    Re-start the program associated with comdlg32.ocx error.

    Hope this helps resolving the issue, if issue persists do get back to us we will be glad to help you.

    Thank you.

    "Missing Comdlg32.ocx error while running Word

    Missing Comdlg32.ocx error while running an application?

    Component 'COMCTL32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered:

    A file is missing or invalid.

    Every time I try to start up 'WORD' I get that message. This never happened before the latest Windows 10 upgrade.

    How do I get rid of it, I'm finding it very frustrating.

    I've tried the following 'cure' but it hasn't worked:

    Outdated or missing comdlg32.ocx runtime library is causing this error. Here is a copy of

    comdlg32.ocx
    (~60 Kb Zip). Download the file to the Desktop and extract the comdlg32.ocx to your the
    Windows\System32 folder.
    Note: If you already have a copy of comdlg32.ocx, backup the existing file to a different folder and delete it from System32 folder.

    1. Download
    comdlg32.zip
    and save to Desktop.

    2. Unzip the file using WinZip or any other utility.

    3. Extract comdlg32.ocx to Windows\System32 folder.

    4. Type the following command from Start, Run dialog:

    regsvr32 %Systemroot%\System32\comdlg32.ocx
