License Required to use this ActiveX Control ?

P: n/a
I tried to add the "Microsoft Common Dialog Control, version 6.0" (also
known as COMDLG32.OCX) to an Access97 application I am developing and
received error "You Don't Have a License to use this ActiveX Control".

I Googled around and the closest thing I could find only applies to
Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition (which I am not using):
(
http://support.microsoft.com/default...B;en-us;172859
)

I tried the fix anyway, but it fails because ODE is not installed. This
is a work PC and we have full Office97 AFAIK.

The KB site says the problem stems from the order in which certain
ActiveX controls were registered.

Has anyone encountered this and been able to resolve it?

What are you using the control for? If it's for the Windows File Open/File
Save dialog, use the APIs instead. See
http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm at "The Access Web" for a
complete example.

Thanks for that (saving for future reference). I'm actually looking for
the Printer dialog.
