  1. Outlook 2010 asks for missing file during install - it will still work but it asks for it...


    I previously posted this question;


    when I open outlook 2010 in windows 10 the install starts (already installed) it asks for a disk with mscomctfix on it, can't find it, so I cancel the process and it closes then open outlook anyway. Usually starts after a windows update. Tried to repair office 10 with the disk, no change. How do I find this file?

    I received this response and it worked once all though the instructions didn't work as given; after I tried it the first time I also got regsrv32 mscomctl.ocx is an unrecognized command when I try to enter it I appreciate this assistance.

    Hi Martin, i'm Timon and i'm glad to help you.

    You're probably talking about mscomctl isn't it ?

    If so, you may download this file:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/detail...

    Don't install it, but extract it somewhere.

    - Copy the mscomctl.ocx file to C:\Windows\system32 (Win10 - 32 Bit ) or C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (Win10 - 64 Bit)

    - Hit Windows + X and launch Command Prompt (admin)

    For Windows 32 bits type: regsrv32 mscomctl.ocx and hit ENTER

    For Windows 64 bits type:
    cd.. hit ENTER
    cd SysWOW64 hit ENTER
    regsrv32 mscomctl.ocx and hit ENTER

    If Outlook still ask for mscomctl, just provide the folder where you extracted it.


    After attempting this fix I get the message insert the 'mscomctfix' disk and click ok. when I try to enter the path I get the file is not a valid installation package for the product mscomctfix Then a error 1706 message.


    I tried to put the mscomctl.otx file on a jump drive but it still wasn't the file the system was looking for.


    Thanks for any thoughts on this issue.


    Martin
