How to reinstall OLE server?

Gary Roach

I'm using Access 2007. I want to insert an ActiveX control in a form. When I
attempt to do so, I get the error message:

The OLE server isn't registered. To register the OLE server, reinstall it.

Googling this turns up nothing. What do I do? Thanks for any help.

If the control's file is on your machine, you can simply re-register it:

Start >>> Run

then type:

Regsvr32.exe "C:\Windows\System32\MyControl.ocx"

using the path to the ActiveX control that you want to register. You should
get a message box returning to say that the registration has been
successful.

Do you happen to know how to register Adobe Acrobat 8? I follow your steps
but don't seem to know how to determine the path to put in the " ". Is there
a specific file that I should be looking for? Thanks

I get the same error message, but it has to do with trying to insert OLE objects (jpgs) into an OLE text field. The problem is I was able to insert images just fine before -- now this error message is appearing. I'm am curious to know why this happening now if it worked before.

Before I try it, will Regsvr32.exe "C:\Windows\System32\MyControl.ocx work for Access 2010?

I'm trying to reinstall the OLE service and I've tried the link above and my system says does not recognize Regsvr32.exe "C:\Windows\System32\MyControl.ocx. Does anybody really know how to install this? I'm trying to work on my Access 365 database and i'm having issues with my images.
