So a right-click option on the icon/program and choosing to ru in Administrator mode doesn't help?

Thank you for your comment.
No, it does not work - the program has been reinstalled with the administrator right. The mode compatibiity with XP had also been try.
I think it may be due to the registration of the ocx in the registry - I don't know the way to register  is different in Vista.

Hi!

The manual registering on Vista is the same a on other OS

This will unregister
regsvr32 c:\path\myControl.ocx /U

And this will register the control
regsvr32 c:\path\myControl.ocx

Run command is on the startup menu, among the other programs, that's a little hiden in Vista. And Run that as admin on right click menu that appeasr from right mouse button on the "run" command icon.
