Default ocx file not working in my htm page

hi all,

i have a simple test htm page that opens up a .ocx file and passes a value into it.
the ocx connects to a db retrieves a recordset of document paths using the value passed in and displays them in a list box for the user to click on and open.

i have this working on my PC, however when i have copied the .htm and .ocx files onto another PC the .ocx does not work and i just get a red X in the top corner.
do i have to register the ocx if its used on a web page?
is it something to do with the CLSID?

code in .htm is
HTML Code:

<OBJECT name="activeXControlName" id="activeXControlID" width="500" height="200" classid="clsid:6BB4BAEC-DB5D-4FEB-9B66-D8C04686A120">
<param name="propertyNameToBeExposedThroughParam" value="98" />


thanks in advance
Were all going to heaven lads, wey heyy.....

Yeah, chances are you have to register the ocx.

running "regsvr32 filepath" generally does the trick.
