While most installs work as expected when you are logged in as the Local PC Administrator,
there have been a couple of cases where there was an issue registering the HCSFP.OCX during the install.
This may be due to Windows UAC, other installed OCX or some form of rights issue , Anti Virus etc....
The fix for this is as follows. (Only seen on Windows 7 so instructions are Windows 7 specific)

NOTE: Some systems will not allow batch files to run so doing the manual typing shown above mode is the only option.
The following batch file will run from any directory. (Only Windows 7 since Windows 10 does not need this registration)
Suggested method would be to download to Windows "Downloads" folder.
Open Windows File Explorer and navigate to "Downloads"
Right click the zip file and extract the batch file
Right click on the extracted batch file and "Run as Administrator"
You should see it open a Command Window, and register the ocx just like typing it in manually and the success window.
Click any button to close command Window.
