Missing or Broken reference to the file imgscan.ocx

Hi experts

I'm working on moving clients from a variety of win95/98/me and 2000 to windows xp - all has run smoothly except an access database which throws the following error on execution:

"Your microsoft access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file imgscan.ocx version 1.0"

The database opens smoothly with access 2000 but I'm having problems working out what I need to do - All support suggests I check the box next to the reference marked as missing - however, no references are marked as missing!

Can anyone tell me what reference I need to make available in access 2002 to solve this?

Your help is much appreciated.

imgscan.ocx was always included in a windows installation until....XP.

Try locating the ocx and register in on XP.

Thank you for your help - I have having problems using and keeping on track of this site - I must apologise for not replying to your answer but I was unable to resolve the problem - however the company are moving to new software in the very near future and their current access database will be obsolete!
