Windows Common Dialog Control General Question

Before distributing a database that I have developed, I thought that I
would ask the resident gurus a general question regarding Common
Dialogs Control. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I have read somewhere
that one can expect problems with different versions of Windows Common
Dialogs. Is this true?

I have used several in developing an Access 97 database on a Windows
98 SE machine that has comdlg32.dll 4-23-99, and comdlg32.ocx 5-22-00.
Should I be concerned about this and if so, what steps should be taken
to ensure any problems are minimized? The database will be compiled in
Runtime prior to distribution.

Thanks for any assistance. Dalan

Yes, the Common Dialog control is prone to breaking, as well as the issues
with different distributions (on different versions of Windows).

Replace it with API calls from:
