I have a DTPicker on my form and can see and use it fine.  However, on another terminal I am unable to see it.  I've tried copying mscomctl2.ocx and .dep to reference it but it still didn't seem to work.

any suggestions.

Be sure to execute regsvr32

regsvr32 path to the ocx\mscomctl2.ocx

You won't need the dep file -- it is used by package builders to determine what dependencies the control has.

If that doesn't do it, check for a version conflict between ComCat.dll on the two machines...

scorp8  - From the Start Button on the Task Bar, choose Run...then enter

regsvr32 <path to the mscomclt2.ocx>

be sure to FILL IN the actual path to the OCX, in place of <path to the mscomclt2.ocx> in the above.  Then click on OK.  You should then get a dialog box informing you that the OCX has been properly registered.

OK, it worked, however on the machine it successfully registered to, it doesn't seem to act right.  Example, on my machine, if I enter in a date w/time and go to the next record, it's fine, however, when I do the same on the other computer, my time is not available and I get errors.  I've double checked all the properties and formats seem to be fine.  Is there anything I may be missing?

You can check the date/time format for windows in the Control Panel under Regional Settings.  Make sure both machines are set the same.  What is the specific error you are getting?

When I go into my field the first time the Date/Time shows fine, however, when I go to the next record to select it again, it only show's the date and NOT the time.

This is the message I get when I try to go back or forward in the record count.

"An error occurred in a call to the Windows Date and Time Picker control."

Two weeks ago, it was working fine...

What OS and version?  It sounds like the control is not initializing correctly.  Have you only tried this on 2 machines?

There are some issues with the Comctl32.dll file.  It needs to be version 4.70 or better.
