When I run visual basic 5 enterprise addition and select the enterprise control set, I get and error message stating
System Error &H80004002 Continue loading project yes or no.

If I continue, the same error message appears several times until loading is complete.

After loading if I right click on the controls bar and select <CONTROLS> I receive the same error and nothing in the controls list.

Could somebody please tell me why this has occured and if there is a way of fixing it. ( I have uninstalled VB5 and reinstalled but to no avail!)

I found the following advice at http://www.computersimple.com/dbd_supp.html 

The error occurs due to the updated Microsoft file COMCAT.DLL version 5.0 that is delivered with their Visual Basic Service Pack 3.
This dll is located in your Windows\System directory or System32 in NT.
To correct the problem, replace the verson 5.0 of this file with the previous version 4.71
(The site has a download button to get the relevant file)
       
Unregister the Dll using Regsvr32 /u comcat.dll
Rename the Dll to *.old
Copy from your VB CD, the original file (version 4.71) to the System directory.
Register the Dll using Regsvr32 comcat.dll
Reboot
