Solution:
Go to this folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS\6.1.379.0\Application\UI\CMS\ActiveX

Open the EPiServerClientComponents.CAB file and extract the contents.

Run a cmd prompt as administrator and enter:
cd “C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS\6.1.379.0\Application\UI\CMS\ActiveX”
– or wherever you extracted the files

regsvr32.exe EPiFileUpload.dll (install fileupload)
regsvr32.exe EPiOfficeIntegration.dll (install office integration)
