Access 2003 can not see ocx with office and xpsp3

I have a client who when logging in with administrator privileges the main menue form of my access 2000 mde runs fine.  I ve got it linked to a zmousetrap.ocx in the system32 folder.  

If they login as a restricted user with full read write permissions to the program files directory where the mde is a dialogue comes up when the form loads saying that a prarameter value cant be found - this same thing happens when the zmousetrap is not registered so im assuming its that

We tried the office 2003 sp3 hotfix as it describes this error well - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/945674 but that did not work

wondering if there is now an issue with xp sp3?

Could that be a machine specific?
Checked that the ActiveX is registred while logging in as a ristricted user?
DOes acess 2003 work fine for restricted users without the z----.ocx?

No its not machine specific
yes access 2003 works fine for restricted user without non specific ocx
The ocx appears to not be registered when loggin in as a restricted user under xp sp3

So the problem is OCX Related.
Compare registration with Administrator account!

Moving the OCX next to the mde and registering it there fixed the problmem
