Open a command prompt, navigate it to the directory the OCX files are stored in, and then type:

"regsvr $FILENAME"

...where "$filename" is the name of one of the EHM OCX/runtime files, and hit Enter. Repeat for the other files. This registers them, and EHM should run then. You should only have to ever do this once for each file.

try this:
http://ehm.fhockey.com/resources/vbrun60sp3.EXE
and this:
http://ehm.fhockey.com/resources/ocx_files.zip

the problem may be in OS System
in the properties of the Eastside.exe there should be marked:
COmpatability - Use in Win95 mode

freeware ocx

Post by SailsofKharon » Sat Mar 10, 2018 9:02 pm

im trying to install freeware and getting "mci32.ocx not correctly registered, a file is missing or invalid". So i tried to register it using what directions i could find on here and the read me from the ocx download but just kept getting another error message. "module "mci32.ocx" was loaded but he call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x8002801c" I looked up the error code to no avail.

I'm on windows 10, can anyone offer me some adice.

Are you registering it from an elevated command line (Administrator rights)? Also make sure mci32.ocx is in the right directory path.

I dumped the ocx files in the main eastside hockey manager folder in program files(x86). and i know to right click and run as administrator on comand prompt but when doing it that way im not sure how to navigate to the right folder to do the registry properly.
