Is it possible to register and execute the following OCX and DLL files on Microsoft 365 64-bit?

  • owc11.exe
  • mschrt20.ocx
  • mscomct2.ocx
  • msdatgrd.ocx
  • MSSTDFMT.DLL

We installed these files on Windows 10 and Office 32-bit to use some ActiveX components like data picker, chart, and grid. Is there a version available that is compatible with Microsoft 365 64-bit?

    Hey Senkal Suzanna

    The move towards 64-bit Office applications means that the older 32-bit ActiveX controls might not play nice. You know, it's all about compatibility and security changes.

    In the newer landscape, Microsoft encourages using Office Add-ins and web technologies. The Office JavaScript API is a cool way to extend Office functionality without the headache of 32-bit vs. 64-bit issues. It's the more modern route.

    But before you try registering those older files, check if there are updated versions or alternatives designed to work seamlessly with 64-bit Office.

    If this helps kindly accept the answer thanks much.
