    Unanswered: MSCOMCT2.OCX Problem

    I have an application that contains UpDown buttons on my forms. I had a problem with my PC and had to have it set back to factory settings. When I got it back I couldn't open my application because I have a "missing or broken reference" - MSCOMCT2.OCX. I see a some fixes on the web but I get error messages when I try to register the file. I'm runnng Access 2007 and Vista Home Premium. I would very much appreciate step by step instructions on how to fix this problem. As an alternative, would it work if I replaced the UpDown buttons (which by the way are now blank i.e. no arrows) with new ones?
    Thanks

    What error do you have when you try to use regsrv32.exe to register the ActiveX component?
    Have a nice day!

    You "may" want to consider changing the form design so it doesn't utilize the *.ocx file. Utilizing ActiveX objects typically causes problems when something is changed with the Office environment (ie. upgrading to a new version of Office or working with Office installations on different computers which are in a different default folder.)
