Colorway OCX error in Colorway Editor dialog box


If you see “Colorway OCX – Version 1.0 (C++)” in the Colorway Editor dialog box, then you need to do a file registration in Windows. The issue could be caused by the Windows UAC (User Account Control) during the Wilcom software installation process.

Solution:Please follow the procedure below for doing a file registration in Windows for the “CLRWAYS.OCX ” file that is in the bin folder of the e3 installation.

1)         Run cmd by “Run as Administrator

i)                Click the “Start” button

ii)               Type cmd in “Search programs and files” box in Windows

iii)              Hit the “Enter” key while pressing down the “Ctrl” key and the “Shift” key (This is the way of running cmd by “Run as Administrator”)

2)         In the cmd box: “Copy” the command below, “Right click” and “Paste”.

regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Wilcom\EmbroideryStudio_e3.0\BIN\CLRWAYS.OCX”

3)         Hit the “Enter” key

Note: A message box should pop up saying: “DIIRegisterServer in C:\Program Files(x86)\Wilcom\EmbroideryStudio_e3.0\BIN\CLRWAYS.OCX succeeded.”

4)         Click on the OK button to close the message box

Note: At this point, the problem should have been resolved. If Windows is 32bit, then please remove “(x86)” from the path in step 2) above. If such measures do not fix the problem, then please continue to run “regsvr32” command line for “MSFLXGRD.OCX” file:

For 64bit Windows:

regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MSFLXGRD.OCX

For 32bit Windows:

regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\MSFLXGRD.OCX
