Once you have downloaded the file you are looking for you still need to make sure Windows or the program causing the error can find it. Follow these steps:
1. If you are encountering an error with Windows...
The file you downloaded may need to be placed into the Windows System directory. On most machines this is one of the following locations:
C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me),
C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or
C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).
If you are encountering an error with a particular program...
The file most likely needs to be in this program's directory. This directory is where the program is installed (i.e. c:\Program Files\ThisProgram).
If this step solves the problem, you do not need to complete step 2.
2. You may to register this file with Windows. Click on the Start Menu and then on 'Run'. If you are replacing a Windows system file, type the following command:
regsvr32 \windows\system\file.ocx (Windows 95/98/ME),
regsvr32 \WINNT\system32\file.ocx (Windows NT/2000), or
regsvr32 \windows\system32\file.ocx (Windows XP).
For example, 'regsvr32 \windows\system\mftp32.ocx'
If you are replacing a file for another program, change the directory where appropriate. For example, 'regsvr32 \program files\Norton\xyz.ocx'
If the file is registered correctly, you will receive a positive confirmation message.
