    COMDLG32.OCX

    We've got a problem with some software (West Point Bridge Designer). We are getting an error saying COMDLG32.OCX is not registered when trying to run it as a student. As SystemAdmin it must have capabilities to register this DLL as the software works fine.

    How do I allow my restricted users rights to register this OCX (or allow the software to register it when they load it)? I've tried RM ACL detective (default settings) with no luck - is there another area (other than the defaults) that I should perhaps be monitoring?

    It's okay thanks - think I've sorted it now. Used the RM ACL detective on the package, but unticked the box where it says "Do express scan" so it did a full scan, which also includes the creation of registry keys I believe.

    Reallocated the package to a test machine, unregistered the OCX as systemadmin, logged in as testpupil and ran the software. The software loaded so it must have allowed the registration of the OCX file for the restricted user.

    How?! Restricted users don't have access to the run command, let alone access to registering random DLL's/OCX's.

    I have a feeling you misunderstood the scenario.

    No Problem, its interesting to see how many different ways people attack a problem. Glad you got it sorted. Our problem was the Activ Studio user profile after we allocated some codecs

    Could have set a logon batch script to register the file with silent switch like:

    regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx /s
