Cannot register MSCOMCTL.OCX in Windows 7, 32 bit


  • Windows 7, 32 bit

    Loading an existing project in the VB6 IDE I get "Object library not registered".

    It is MSCOMCTL.OCX which is not registered.

    I registered it by running "Regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx" from the command line (as Administrator) and it said the .ocx was registered successfully.

    Re-loading the VB6 project I get the same error: "Object library not registered", then, when attempting to add the mscomctl.ocx file to the project via the Components menu in the VB6 IDE, it says "Object not registered".

    I have the same problem with MSCOMCT2.OCX and RICHTX32.OCX

    How do I get out of this? (The project loads OK on a Vista PC and it all worked OK previously on this problem PC, the only possible changes as far as I can see are Windows updates).

    Help please.
