    Exclamation Unanswered: The OLE server isn't registered.

    Does anyone know how to FIX this problem ?

    All I'm trying to do is use the "Common Dialog" activeX component that comes with Access 2000.

    The OLE server isn't registered.

    Hello,

    last night I setup a hole new drive with windows 2000 and office 2000 only, a fresh install, this time I could not even find the common dialog control or the ocx for it...

    isn't this a common problem and why isn't there a applet that checks all activex controls and registerations...

    thanks for the reply

    Actually, this refers to the old ole (16 bit pre-activex) controls. That is why I was asking if it was converted. Did you create this mdb from the access 2000 installation or was the mdb from a previous installation ? The common dialog should be in the following: Tools->ActiveX Controls -> Microsoft Common Dialog Control. The filename is comdlg32.ocx.

    Do you see MS Common Dialog under the ActiveX Controls (in access) ? Does the file comdlg32.ocx exist on your hard drive ? If so, where is it located ? Are you doing a full installation to your hard drive for the office installations ?

    YES version 6 of MS ComDialog Control
    YES in the systems32 folder
    YES full windows pro and full office pro/dev installs

    A couple of things I would do:

    Search for the comdlg32.ocx file on your computer - does it exist in locations other than the system32 dir.
    Unregister the ocx until you cannot see it as a choice in access under activex controls. Now, register it. Also, what is the exact version of the file ?

    Try again and let me know. Also, would it be possible for you to post the mdb that uses the common dialog ? Does this only happen when you use the common dialog control ?

    Didn't work

    I am trying to use the common dialog control, but can't seem to get one to appear on the form so I have no demo to post...

    do this; please...
    open a blank db,
    create a new form in design view,
    go to ActiveX Components and try to put a Common dialog box on the form,

    it's call; "Microsoft Common Dialog Control, version 6.0"

    did it work ?
    if yes - send it to me and let me know how you did it...
    if no - that's my problem and your too now

    Thanks

    It works fine - more controls ... draw on form. I have included the mdb. Let me know if you have success with it - Also, let me know the version of your common dialog file - go to the file, right click, properties, version.

    Exclamation This is the solution

    I had the same problem a few week ago.
    You need the Microsoft Office Developer Tools. This software will register your MS Common dialog ActiveX.
    If you (or somebody) have a solution without the installation of this software please let me know.

    Good luck!

    Exclamation

    Yep, I got the answer from Ariel at Microsoft...
    after many corespondences............many

    But PacuIonut is correct, that solves the problem !

    as for as I know that is the only way to fix it !

    Just another example of how Micro$haft works,
    They sell you a product that is not complete, forcing you to buy more garbage just to make what you allready paid for work !!

    Take Care All....And Thanks for your help !!!!!!!

    What was microsofts response as to why ? Is the control not properly registered unless you use the office developer tools or is it a different version of the control ... ?

    They have no excuse, they're shameless...

    I believe the OLE Server only gets registered if you install Developer...
