Are you sure you have placed the .OCX file in right place under Windows 8 OS? Try these suggestions from SmartMenuXP.ocx download free - SmartMenuXP.ocx error fix and file information - :

How to install SmartMenuXP.ocx manually

Copy SmartMenuXP.ocx to the installation directory of the program that is requesting .
If that doesn't work, you will have to copy and paste SmartMenuXP.ocx to your system directory. By default, this is:
C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me)
C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000)
C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP, Vista, 7,8)
If you use a 64-bit version of Windows, you should also place SmartMenuXP.ocx in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ Make sure overwrite any existing files (but make a backup copy of the original file).
Reboot your computer.

If the problem still occurs, try the following:
1. Open Windows Start menu and select "Run...".
2. Type CMD and press Enter (or if you use Windows ME, type COMMAND)).
3. Type regsvr32 SmartMenuXP.ocx and press Enter.
