64bit version wont register CDispShell.dll

64bit version wont register CDispShell.dll

Just posting the fix here, there is a bug where the installer calls the incorrect regsvr32

Fix this by typing into a command prompt with admin rights:

cd \windows\syswow64
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\CDisplayEx\CDispShell.dll"

Running in Windows 8 and this didn't work for me. After ignoring the error in the install I ran your command lines and I get the return error

------------------------
The module "C:\Program Files\CDisplayEx\CDispShell.dll" failed to load.

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.

A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed.

------------
and yes that is the correct file path

Has anyone got this to work on Windows 8? I even tried installing the 32 bit version instead. It operates as a program but I don't get the Windows Explorer Icons. The 64 bit version will work but only if I uncheck the icon option. I ran both the program install and cmd.exe as administrator.

For original solution author, did the CDispShell.dll fail to install for you initially as well? I get abort/retry/ignore and I have to hit ignore to get past the prompt.

reread the first post and it seems I may have a different problem than the OP.

Running Windows 8 Pro 64bit

When I install the 32 bit version, everything works normally and I get all features except the icons are still the little comic book speech bubbles.

When running the 64 bit install, it gets to the very end and says

-----
Error

C:\Program Files\CDisplayEx\CDispShell.dll

Unable to register the DLL/OCX: RegSvr32 failed with exit code 0x3

Click Retry to try again, Ignore to proceed anyway (not recommended), or Abort to cancel installation.
-----

Retry gets me nowhere, and Ignore won't let the program run. I can install without the *.dll but then I don't get the icons. My windows was upgraded normally from Windows 7 when they ran their $50 deal earlier this year. I just want this to work :cry:
