  • unable to use/load mscomct2.ocx controls in vb6 ide windows 7 32 bit

     get the below error trying to refer the mscomct2.ocx file, in VB6 IDE on a Windows 7 32 bit PC. The IDE is run on elevated mode.

    error:::::::::::::::::::::::::::object library not registered

    I tried many solutions from SO and other sources, but nothing works for me.

    1. unregistered and re registered from a elevated command prompt
    2. deleted and restored this file from backup and ms sites.
    3. tried finding if duplicate mscomct2.ocx are registered in other paths. but only 1 file under windows\system32 is found in the Pc

    But problem is still

    Please BEWARE that I have NO EXPERIENCE and NO EXPERTISE and probably onset of DEMENTIA which may affect my answers! Also, I've been told by an expert, that when you post an image it clutters up the thread and mysteriously, over time, the link to the image will somehow become "unstable" or something to that effect. :) I can only surmise that is due to Global Warming of the threads.

    Hi,

    Welcome to MSDN.

    I am afraid that these forums don't support VB6, you could refer to the link shared by Mr. Monkeyboy:

    Where to post your VB 6 questions

    I would sugget you consider posting this issue in these forums below:

    These forums do not support Visual Basic 6, however there are many third-party support sites that do. If you have a VB6-related question please visit these popular forums:

    Thanks for your understanding.
