    Unanswered: MSWINSOCK not working on MS Access 2007

    Hi
    I'm developing a db on ms access 2007 and I want to connect to a mail server via ms winsock , I already had my code on VB6 and it is working fine, but when I want to add mswinsock active X to my form in MS Access it says :

    Microsoft Office Access Doesn't Support this Active X

    I know that it should work on ms access but I can't find out what is the problem?

    I searched a lot in dbfroum and other web sites for few days but found no solution.

    Is there anybody having this issue solved? if there is, then please let me know what is the solution?

    Thanx

    This is completely out of my area of experience/expertise, but your post sparked something in the back of my feeble memory, and I found this pertaining to your problem. Apparently the problem was created by a routine Windows update and requires "killbits" to be set in order for Winsock to function:

    Microsoft Security Advisory (960715): Update Rollup for ActiveX Kill Bits

    Hope it helps.
