  3.  In the ‘Open:’ text field type ‘regedit’ and click ok.
  4. The registry editor will open.
  5. In registry editor click ‘Edit’ on the toolbar and then ‘Find…’ (or Ctrl F).
  6.  In the ‘Find what:’ text field paste in the GUID: E.G. {18BC065C-6FED-4B09-BB5C-80A02330143B}.
  7.  Click ‘Find Now’ to perform the search for the InTouch ActiveX GUID.
  8. The search should find the reference (GUID) to an activex control,and is highlighted as a registry folder.
  9.  Expand the found GUID folder.
  10. Click on the ‘InprocServer32’ folder.
  11. The path of the ActiveX control will appear as a string value on the right hand side at the top.
