Hello Anna,

To resolve the issue that you are getting, you will need to  re-register comdlg32.ocx file from an elevated command prompt using the following procedure:

  • On your computer click on Start, and then in the start search type cmd.
  • You will then right click on cmd.exe and  then choose to “Run as administrator”.
  • After that type the following commands and then press Enter after each one of them:

    • regsvr32 /u Comdlg32.ocx
    • regsvr32 /i Comdlg32.ocx
  • After that you will close the command prompt and then try to run the program and see if it will work.

This maybe caused because Comdlg32.ocx might be missing from your computer.

​First you need to verify if the file is present. 

1. Go to run > and type regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx.

2. Press enter, if file is present in your computer then theres no issue with it or else.

3. Restart your computer and download manually from here.

4. Once downloaded extract the files to system 32 folder, in case you are using 64 bit OS extract it to "%SystemRoot%SysWoW64" directory.

If you’ve downloaded MP3 Cutter from its official website then this problem is definitely not from the installer or the software. Also, this error doesn’t only appear when installing MP3 Cutter. Other users have encountered it many times and they are not installing MP3 Cutter or other software. They encountered it when launching a program from the computer.

This means the cause of the problem is within the operating system and not from the software. In your case, since you encountered it while trying to install a program, it’s pretty obvious that the problem is coming from your operating system. There must have been an error in your operating system that caused the “comdlg32.ocx” file to become unregistered.

In this case, follow the instructions posted by Carl Jack in the above answer to re-register the “comdlg32.ocx” file. Once it is registered, go to MP3 Cutter to download the latest version of the application since you are installing this program. Also, before installing the program, make sure your computer meets the requirements.

The latest MP3 Cutter supports Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. It requires Intel Pentium III or faster processor, 256 MB RAM, and 100 MB free hard drive space. It supports the following file formats: MP3, WMA, WAV, AMR, WMV, AVI, MPG, 3GP, MP4, FLAC, OGG, WMV, and MOV.
