Are you having trouble with ActiveX controls? To fix activex controls, try opening your browser window to uninstall the problem ActiveX control and install it again later. Click Tools, choose Manage Add-Ons and Enable/Disable Add-Ons. Choose Downloaded ActiveX Controls from the drop-down list and choose the ActiveX control you want to delete. Highlight and delete it, and then click OK. Go to the website wherein you got your ActiveX control and correctly reinstall the ActiveX control.
Thanks for the thoughts.
The OCX wasn't acquired from a website - it's a 3rd party component that was supplied upon a CD.
I have already tried unregistering the OCX via the Windows command prompt and re-registering it using regsrv32. When I try and call the OCX subsequently, I get the same error message,
The issue was with the ActiveX component. There's an MSDN article explaining the issue here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/189065.
The 3rd party implemented the change as described and the new version of the component works as expected.
