I get the message "Your version of the EZFTP.OCX is out of date and needs to be upgraded. Please see our knowledge base for instructions on updating your EZFTP.OCX file."


The OCX that is used by DeskLot to publish data to the Internet via FTP was upgraded to version in DeskLot version 2.1.68 and above to allow setting Time Out values in DeskLot for users with unreliable internet connections.

Download the new OCX by clicking and save it in your c:\Windows\System32 or c:\WinNT\System32 folder depending on which one exists in your operating system (normally WinNT folders are used on Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 computers).

Once saved, open a command prompt. This can be done by clicking the "Start" menu in Windows, clicking on "Run" and then typing either "cmd" or "command" (depends on your version of Windows) and then clicking "Open".

You will get a window with a black background and a blinking cursor.

Type the following:

RegSvr32 c:\windows\system32\ezftp.ocx
RegSvr32 c:\winnt\system32\ezftp.ocx
... depending on where you saved the downloaded file too...

and then press Enter.

You should get a message box that says "DllRegisterServer in c:\windows\system32\ezftp.ocx succeeded."

Open DeskLot again and confirm that you no longer get the message. If you need further assistance, please contact DeskLot support.
