That's a 32 bit COM solution, and this is what you needed to do.
The all Users thing you should have not done IMO.
You should have done it for your logged-in user account. If "bobybreak" is
the user-id you use to login with as user/admin, then user "bobybreak"
should have been added as an account with the same full-rights as the

Common Dialog32.ocx is a 32 bit program solution.

I don't think there is a 64 bit COM technology. It's only 32 bit.
This is what comdlg32.ocx does from a Windows Web or Desktop solution
It must be that you're trying to install some 32 bit leagcy application on
64 bit system that wants that comdlg32.ocx. It may not be viable.
