MMControl control

A client has asked my to modify his code that was written in VB6. When I try to load his code, I get an error message that refers me to the log file. The log file says

Line 725: Class MCI.MMControl of control MMControl1 was not a loaded control class.

I have looked in the Components and References sections under the Project menu, and cannot find MMControl or MCI. What is more, his code does load other controls automatically (like Winsock), so the MMControl must not be installed properly on my computer. Can anyone tell me how how to make this work (i.e., install it, get it registered, etc.)?

Note: I have tried this on two different computers. Same results.

1. Open your project in VB6,
 2. Press CTRL + T to bring up Components list. Scroll down to locate and check Microsoft Multimedia Control 6.0 (SP3). The actual control file is C:\Windows\System32\MCI32.Ocx.
 3. Click OK to add the control to your component list.
 4. Save the project and close the project.
 5. Re-open the project.

I am having some trouble with a "Line 26: Cannot load control Winsock5; license not found." error message. I have VB 6 installed. Any idea why there would be no license?

Take a look at this link:

Note: The Winsock control file c:\Windows\System32\MSWINSCK.OCX may need to be re-registered, or even may be corrupted. You may copy one from other machine and registered.

Thanks. That did it. I was looking for a component in the Components list called MMControl, instead of Microsoft Multimedia Control. Also, my license was apparently corrupted. Your link above solved that. Good answers.
