that will avoid to register manually everytime the activex using REGSVR32.EXE
-copy to a file RegOCX.REG the lines below as is (with all spaces) then double click on it to
add them to the registry
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Register]
@="&Register OCX"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Register\command]
@="\"REGSVR32.EXE\" \"%1\""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Unregister]
@="&Unregister OCX"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Unregister\command]
@="\"REGSVR32.EXE\" \"%1\" \"/U\" "
