    If you wan't yo use the ocx Active X files in VB application, will will have to register in VB iyself and not from outside... There is an option in components to register the ocx files. Try doing that way, may be that will help you solve the problem...

    Yes, you are right, you will need to use the regsvr32 command to register those files in windows environment. Use this syntax :
    Code:
     regsvr32 <Path of .ocx file>
