VB6 IMage List fails on a different computer

I have a project written in VB6 with SP6 applied to it, on a Win XP sp1 machine.

The project has multiple forms, many with their own toolbars and image lists.  If the form has a toolbar, there are 2 or more image lists on the form, 1 of the image lists is for the "greyed" out version of the icon and the other is for the enabled version and sometimes a third for the active version of the icon.

The image lists are "Image List ActiveX Control - Version 6.0 (sp6)" and the toolbars, if that matters, are "Toolbar ActiveX Control - Version 6.0 (sp6)"

On my development machine everything works just fine, I can compile, load into source safe, load out of source safe, recompile, etc.

A co-worker of mine has a box very similar to mine with VB6 (SP6) and XP (sp1).   This has been reformatted yesterday and that didnt help matters any.

When he does a check-out from source safe everything else works fine except that the image lists no longer contain any images.
He then loads the project into VB6 and attempts to open a form containing an image list and he gets a bunch of errors like these:
Line 105: Property DragIcon in tbKNOBBar had an invalid file reference.
Line 298: Property Picture in ListImage1 had an invalid file reference.
Line 302: Property Picture in ListImage2 had an invalid file reference.

There are a LOT of images loaded into the image lists and I dont want to have to go through each image list, compare with mine and then load the image in there etc.  I checked the mscomstl.ocx on my machine and he has the exact same version number (6.1.97.82) and date (Feb 2004)  of the same ocx on his machine and it is in the same location (c:\windows\system32\)

My question is:  What is causing this and how can I get his machine working so that he can compile the program without a problem?  In particular, I dont want to have to re-do all of the image lists because then I would have to go through a lot of pain, check in the new project and then check it out on my machine and hope that I dont get the same issues.

Basically, i need this to work :)

Thanks!
Rico
