    the exe wont open because it says comdlg32 is not working

    anyone know the fix

    • Thomas

      Right click on advance text and click on “Run As Administrator”. You have to do that every time. 🙂

  • Gallade Guy

    The EXE file doesn’t show up (or, well, it shows up for a few seconds then dissipears, and clicking it while it’s there for that short window of time does nothing), and when run straight from the ZIP it loads an error, that quickly disappears before I can read it. Also I’ve installed both the needed files (the third was pre-installed) and have redownloaded, and even copied my brother’s version of the files, who’s exe does show up and works, but it still won’t show up, please help.

      • Ollie Pickup

        Tried what it suggests and still no luck. are the OCX files compatible with 64-bit Windows 10?

        • Matteo Iervasi

          I also have a 64 bit Windows 10 virtual machine, and I had no problems. Did you start the cmd with administrator privileges?
