What are Controls.ocx Error Messages?


ActiveX-Related Controls.ocx Errors

Controls.ocx is considered a type of COM file, or Component Object Model, most commonly known as an ActiveX control. ActiveX controls like Controls.ocx are used by Classic PDF Editor and other software to display media-related content. Therefore, your will most likely encounter a Controls.ocx error when attempting to load an audio or video clip, or view some variety of embedded website content. Some of the most common Controls.ocx ActiveX errors include:

These OCX errors are most commonly due a missing or corrupt OCX. If your file is missing or corrupt, this could be caused by improper computer shutdown, or a malware infection, both of which could corrupt (or even delete) Controls.ocx. If your Controls.ocx is corrupted or missing, and therefore cannot be properly loaded by Classic PDF Editor, this will result in an error message.

Finally, another common cause of Controls.ocx ActiveX errors can be contributed to an ActiveX-related subkey missing from the Windows registry. Broken DLL (Dynamic Link Library) references in the Windows registry can prevent Controls.ocx from registering properly, resulting in an ActiveX error. These broken references (registry keys) are usually triggered by a moved or missing file, or as a result of a leftover DLL file reference after a shared program has been uninstalled.



How to Fix Controls.ocx Errors in 4 Steps (Time to complete: ~5-15 minutes)

If you're encountering one of the error messages above, follow these troubleshooting steps to resolve your Controls.ocx issue. These troubleshooting steps are listed in the recommended order of execution.


Step 1: Use Microsoft Register Server (regsvr) to Manually Register Your Controls.ocx File

When you install Classic PDF Editor, or another software that uses the Controls.ocx dependency, the software should register the file automatically. Sometimes your OCX file won't get registered properly and will trigger a "Controls.ocx not registered" error. Thankfully, Microsoft included a handy built-in utility called "Microsoft Register Server" (regsvr32.exe) to enable you to manually re-register your Controls.ocx file.

How to re-register Controls.ocx from an elevated command prompt (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. In the search box, type "command" (do not presss ENTER yet)
  3. While holding CTRL-Shift, hit ENTER.
  4. You will be prompted with a permission dialog box.
  5. Click Yes.
  6. Type this command: regsvr32 /u Controls.ocx
  7. Hit ENTER. This process will UN-register your file, allowing you to RE-register it.
  8. Type this command: regsvr32 /i Controls.ocx
  9. Hit ENTER. This process will RE-register your file.
  10. Close the command prompt window.
  11. Re-start Classic PDF Editor.

regsvr32 /u Controls.ocx

Step 2: Restore your PC back to the latest restore point, "snapshot", or backup image before error occurred.

To begin System Restore (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. When you see the search box, type "System Restore" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the search results, find and click System Restore.
  4. Please enter the administrator password (if applicable / prompted).
  5. Follow the steps in the System Restore Wizard to choose a relevant restore point.
  6. Restore your computer to that backup image.

If the Step 1 fails to resolve the Controls.ocx error, please proceed to the Step 2 below.

Step 3: If recently installed Classic PDF Editor (or related software), uninstall then try reinstalling Classic PDF Editor software.

You can uninstall Classic PDF Editor software by following these instructions (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. In the search box, type "Uninstall" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the search results, find and click "Add or Remove Programs"
  4. Find the entry for Classic PDF Editor 12 and click "Uninstall"
  5. Follow the prompts for uninstallation.

Step 4: Perform a Windows Update.

When the first two steps haven't solved your issue, it might be a good idea to run Windows Update. Many Controls.ocx error messages that are encountered can be contributed to an outdated Windows Operating System. To run Windows Update, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. In the search box, type "Update" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the Windows Update dialog box, click "Check for Updates" (or similar button depending on your Windows version)
  4. If updates are available for download, click "Install Updates".
  5. After the update is completed, restart your PC.

If Windows Update failed to resolve the Controls.ocx error message, please proceed to next step. Please note that this final step is recommended for advanced PC users only.



If Those Steps Fail: Download and Replace Your Controls.ocx File (Caution: Advanced)

If none of the previous three troubleshooting steps have resolved your issue, you can try a more aggressive approach (Note: Not recommended for amateur PC users) by downloading and replacing your appropriate Controls.ocx file version. We maintain a comprehensive database of 100% malware-free Controls.ocx files for every applicable version of Classic PDF Editor.

  3. Copy this file to the appropriate Classic PDF Editor folder location:
    Windows 10: C:\Program Files (x86)\Classic PDF Editor\
  4. Restart your computer.

If this final step has failed and you're still encountering the error, you're only remaining option is to do a clean installation of Windows 10.


GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve Controls.ocx problems. To avoid data loss, you must be sure that you have backed-up all of your important documents, pictures, software installers, and other personal data before beginning the process. If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.



Download Controls.ocx Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying Controls.ocx to your appropriate Windows system directory. Classic PDF Editor typically does not release Classic PDF Editor OCX files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing Controls.ocx and all other OCX files for Classic PDF Editor. An incorrectly installed OCX file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
