Here is a small too I made for registering and unregistering ActiveX and COM controls. Unlike similar tools out there this one was specifically designed to be "so simple, a cave man could do it"
It is targeted at simi/non-computer literate users and/or users that need simple easy to use register/unregister support.
Unlike RegSvr32.exe included with windows RegTool features a drag n' drop interface and a file chooser to make registration easy. for those who need or prefer command line options are also available.
RegTool registers files directly using the Windows API so it is not dependent on RegSvr32.exe although if you wish you can use the -p flag to force RegTool to use RegSvr32.exe tp register/unregister files.
RegTool is used it for (re)registering ActiveX controls on misbehaving applications as well as troubleshooting app scripts for WinPE
alot of VB6 programs are dependent on various controls (ex. Malwarebytes). various windows components also sometimes need to be re-registered if something gets borked.
It is simple and easy enough that I can easily talk an "technologically challenged" employee at a remote location how to use it over the phone.
Power users wanting more control, including a list of currently registered controls should check out Nirsoft's excellent RegDllView tool.
x86 and x64 versions available.
