    Automate installation of MCI.OCX

    Hi all,

    we run a fine piece of software, dated back from the last millenium that uses MCI.OCX for whatever reason. Now it seems some Windows update or somesuch has unregistered/removed/changed it since it got included in the image we clone clients with, back in 1999.

    Since I'd prefer not having to manually reinstall the app. on 100+ clients (all XP), I am wondering if anybody has a suggestion as to how to reinstall it from an AD computer startup script?

    You could run a Start Up script in a suitable GPO which simple had
    Code:
    RegSrv32  C:\Path_to_File\MCI.OCX
    RunDll can also be used to do the same thing
    Code:
    rundll32 yourdll.ocx,DLLRegisterServer
    or
    Code:
    rundll32 yourdll.ocx,DLLUnregisterServer
    to unregister.

    Some of the freeware tools at dirfile.com might also be worth a look.

    Re: Automate installation of MCI.OCX

    I had a similar problem with a old piece of software that needed to .ocx files installed on every machine and then regisitered. I have a vbscript that does htis quite happily from a GPO but i think Netgeezer has covered everythiing above.

    If not i can drop you a copy of the script for yu to twaek to suit your enviroment.
