I am trying to load the common controls through the components menu but I keep getting an error that states that the file cannot be loaded. I have reinstalled Visual Basic, scan disked, fixed registry errors through regedit, and defraged. My vb version is 5 professional edition.

I need help immediately because I need my treeview control for a project.

I had the service pack. I ended up taking my harddrive back to the original settings and reinstalling every thing. I have an acer and they provide a disk to help with this process.

Everything works fine so far.

Check if you have the latest version of the dll file. (Comctl32.dll) since the ocx file is simply a front end for the dll file.  You can get the latest version of the dll file off of the microsoft web site as a distributable dll file.  The version I have is 4.72.3110.1  and it's the one off of the MS website
