MsWinsck.ocx registration in Access project

Hi, i need to import the ActiveX MSWINCK.OCX in Access.
I've placed the MSWINSCK.OCX in the \WINT\SYSTEM32 and then i've registered it from the ActiveX menu in Access.
Then i try to include the ActiveX in a Form but Access answer that I've not the Licence to use it.

check if you've opened the database as the administrator
if not then check security permissions and users from menu
Tools - Security - User and Group Permission

A bit more:

Yesterday Access and 'winsock including' works well, today i have reinstalled Win2000 and formatted all the previous system, i have reinstalled Office and now i have this problem.

Can this information be usefull for you?

Thanks in advance.
:) maybe ,,,

# look is there already a winsock control included in a form or something ?
if so remove it ,, then register the activex then add it again

# why do you try to import and register the OCX file ,, while it's by default
registered ?? ,, are you trying to register another version of it , if not why dont you try to use the existing one
installed by the OS ??
hope this wasnt stupid enough :) lol
look ,, try this also ,,
from Start - Run :

Yes, There are other forms with This ActiveX already included...
I haven't find in the OS the mswinsock .ocx so i've decided ti import another, maybe that in win2000 the winsock is not named as MSWINSCK.OCX ???  Or maybe is it in a different directory?

However the problems with registration are for many  ActiveX in my system that i try to import in Access, the system ansewe me that i must contact the ActiveX producer... but i don't think that the winsocks are copyrighted so strong!!!
Bye and thanks in advance
