The Object Linking and Embedding is a technology released by Microsoft that allows users to embed objects into different programs. In other words, one can link one program with another. For example, you can embed a spreadsheet in Microsoft word and can open the spreadsheet in a separate window to edit it by clicking on it. The use of OLE has increased over these years with Microsoft using their technology in almost every program of theirs.
However, the question that one might ask is that “What’s the connection between OLE and Registry?”. When a program is registered as a server application for the OLE, the registration is recorded by the Registry. The registration consists of several entries. All these entries are stored in the Registry. Now the number of entries differs in different programs. A small program would have fewer entries than large programs. Programs like Microsoft Word are huge programs and when the program registers itself for OLE technology, hundreds of entries are stored in the registry.
Errors can occur in the different OLE modules stored in the registry. One such module where errors may occur in is the richtx32.ocx OLE module. The richtx32.ocx module is used for Microsoft Rich Text editor. It allows for editing in the text box object. There may be several richtx32.ocx related registry errors that may occur in the registry. Sometimes these problems may be due to the accumulation of entries of the different programs in the computer system.
If you face any problems with your richtx32.ocx module it is advisable to remove it. Now you cannot just remove the module from the registry. This module is a product of Microsoft and is mostly used in Microsoft Visual Basic. In order for you to remove this module, you will have to uninstall Visual Basic. This will remove the corrupted module from your computer.
Another problem that occurs is the registry keys getting accumulated in the registry. When we uninstall MS Visual Basic it may not remove the registry keys from the registry. Too many registry keys may clutter the Registry and it will slow down the computer.
The solution to richtx32.ocx related registry problems is a registry cleaner. Running a good registry cleaner will check for this corrupted module and remove it. Registry Mighty has specific tools built for detecting invalid OLE modules or corrupted ones that are affecting the performance of a program or of the computer. Scanning the computer with registry mighty will detect not just the corrupted or invalid OLE modules, but other modules like ActiveX control and COM.
OLE registries are really important for your computer system. In most of the programs, those that are released by Microsoft and those that are released from other companies have integrated OLE technology into their operations. Hence keeping the registry safe and unaffected is necessary for this technology to function.
