You may receive an error when installing or running an application stating that an OCX file or a DLL file needs to be registered as system global. Make a note of the file that needs to be registered.
DLL FilesTo register a DLL as a system global, go to the SYSTEM32 directory and locate the DLL mentioned in the error message. The command to register a file called Sample.dll is:
REGISTER /S SAMPLE.DLLRegistration data for a program is recognized only when the program is loaded. Therefore, if you issue a REGISTER command for a program that is already loaded, the changes will not take effect until the next time the program is loaded.
Also note that only administrators can run REGISTER.
