Hi,

I have created an 1 File Setup using InstallShield Express 2 for a
VB4-32bit application. My application is using a 32bit Spreadsheet
Control (VCF132.OCX) from Visual Components. When I install to the
Windows 95 target platform, it works fine on some machines but fails on
some others with the message 'Failed to Self Register
C:\Windows\System\vcf132.ocx'.

Any help is appreciated.

Tanes,

The most common cause of a file failing to self-register is the
dependencies are not included in the
install and/or are not registered on the target system.
Make sure that all dependencies exist and are registered on the target
machine self-registration
fails on.. Include the file that is failing to self-register as the last
file in your file groups. This will cause
the file to be self-registered as the last file of the install. Also try
manually self-registering the failing ocx's on the target machine
self-registration fails on..

Microsoft tells me that EXPSRV.DLL should not be allowed to self register
with VB 6.0. Turn this off. Also, I would not arbitrarily turn off self
registration on any file that was not giving me a problem in this regard as
others have suggested.

Some do, we have no choice. Express gives errors when it feels
like it and Microsoft Setup replaces new one with old ones with zero
options.
