What are Flash10a.ocx Error Messages?

ActiveX-Related Flash10a.ocx Errors

Flash10a.ocx is considered a type of COM file, or Component Object Model, most commonly known as an ActiveX control. ActiveX controls like Flash10a.ocx are used by Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate and other software to display media-related content. Therefore, your will most likely encounter a Flash10a.ocx error when attempting to load an audio or video clip, or view some variety of embedded website content. Some of the most common Flash10a.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) Flash10a.ocx. If your Flash10a.ocx is corrupted or missing, and therefore cannot be properly loaded by Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate, this will result in an error message.

Finally, another common cause of Flash10a.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 Flash10a.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 Flash10a.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 Flash10a.ocx issue. These troubleshooting steps are listed in the recommended order of execution.

Step 1: Use Microsoft Register Server (regsvr) to Manually Register Your Flash10a.ocx File

When you install Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate, or another software that uses the Flash10a.ocx dependency, the software should register the file automatically. Sometimes your OCX file won't get registered properly and will trigger a "Flash10a.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 Flash10a.ocx file.

How to re-register Flash10a.ocx from an elevated command prompt (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  9. Hit ENTER. This process will RE-register your file.
  10. Close the command prompt window.
  11. Re-start Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate.

Step 4: Perform a Windows Update.

  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 Flash10a.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 Flash10a.ocx File (Caution: Advanced)
