COMDLG32.OCX in Windows 2003 Server

I have upgraded a windows 2000 server to Windows 2003.
One of the programs that is used regularly is a VB6 application which now crashes when it tries to run, giving the error message:
Component 'COMDLG32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid

I have searched the OS and this ocx does not appear anywhere on the hard-disk.
Can I simply copy this ocx to the Windows system32 folder and run regsvr32? and will this affect any other software on the machine?

yes, you can copy that control and register it, it will not affect other software on the machine.
