mswinsck.ocx

MSWINSCK.OCX  is a file required by many old application in order to listen to a certain port or just allow. network connections. This OCX will not register as most of know, by putting in in the system32 folder and typing the command “regsvr32 MSWINSCK.OCX”. With newer 64 bit systems it is a bit tricky. Here is how to do it

1. download the file here

2. Copy it to c:\\windows\\syswow64

3. type the following “Run” command :   “regsvr32 c:\\windows\\syswow64\\MSWINSCK.OCX” and yes, you must type the full path to the file, not just the name.

4. That’s it it should work now.
