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 ( 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 :)

Did you checked in *.frx file (the same filename as *frm file)?
