MSCAL.OCX Version Conflict
Posted on 2004-03-29
I have a database that has been using the Calender Control 9.0 (mscal.ocx). When I installed it on a computer running Access XP, when they attempt to use the control it crashes Access.
I am running office xp on my development machine, but have no problem with it on this machine. When I checked the version of MSCAL.OCX that the other machine has, it is version 10.0. The only way to get it to work is to do a repair of the Office installation, and then it changes the reference from the 9.0 to 10.0, but I don't want to require this of my endusers each time they install the software.
Is there a way that I can configure the calendar to work regardless of what version of Access and what version of MSCAL.OCX they are running? Keep in mind that I need this to work in the Access 2000 runtime version as well. I am looking for another free activex control to use in stead, but if there's an easy way around this, it would be preferred.
