Hi Tech people,

I got this error message when I try to launch the Microsoft Visual Studio in the computer. The error says that the ‘component ‘MSCOMCTL.OCX’ or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid’. How do I fix the missing file? Please help. Thanks.

Looks like your system has a lack of some resources so this error is occurring. Filling those required resources will solve this issue.

“MSCOMCTL.OCX” is a file that is “Microsoft Library Windows Common Controls” file. It is important for some programs because they depends on this file and if not found, throws up such error.

In order to have the file inside your system once again,

  1. Search your system for “MSCOMCTL.OCX”. If not found, download it from here.
  2. Copy the file into “C:WindowsSystem32”.
  3. Open Command Prompt, run the following command:
    regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx
    If you’re on Windows 7 or Vista, you have to run Command Prompt by right-clicking and selecting “Run as administrator”.
  4. Run the installation of the software.

Now, the program will definitely run perfectly.
