Why does this work on my computer

Dim MSComm1 As Object
Set MSComm1 = CreateObject("MSCOMMLib.MSComm")

but it does not work on another computer that has MSCOMM32.OCX in the system32 folder and it is registered.

I get an error Activex component cannot create object.

I do not want to add a reference to the Microsoft Comm Control 6.0 because this would cause errors on other computers that do not have the OCX.
