Some ActiveX objects require a licence - Might be because the user doesn't have the licence to view the date/time picker.

If you log onto the other users machine, create a form in a new db and try and add the date/time picker (you may have to copy paste from your db), the system will tell you if you do not have the licence.

The other reason maybe that in code you have told the object to be hidden.

Me.YourDateTimePickerName.Visible = true

to the OnOpen or OnLoad event of the form.

Yes - if the users don't have it installed already, that could be the problem.
