Default MSCOMCTL.OCX on windows 8

hi, wasn't sure where to put this

first off, i'm not too adept at this stuff

i'm trying to run nulldc with a cheat program called chankastcheater

i tried running another cheat program but it did the same thing, so here we go.

in order to run it i needed mscomctl.ocx on my system, so i went online, followed the instructions on how to do it, downloaded the file, put it in windows/system, ran "REGSVR32 MSCOMCTL.OCX" and got this error message

"The module "MSCOMCTL.OCX" may not be compatible with the version of Windows that you're running. Check if the module is compatible with an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of regsvr32.exe."

i'm running windows8 and 64 bit(i think it is.. one of my system folders is called syswow64 so i assume..)
can somebody please help me out here? i need this program to run

shenmue needs to buy toys like crazy if i'm going to enjoy this game!

Welcome to Major Geeks!

You should never download DLL or OCX files from the Internet; you should either install the appropriate application that contains the DLL, or if it is a Windows component, use the System File Checker to restore the missing file:
sfc /scannow

Its more likely a problem with the application and compatibility.

Not to mention that you didn't put the file in the correct location for 64 bit Windows, and like pwillener said, it probably isn't the correct version.

I second the sfc /scannow.
