Calendar Control problem

Hi,
I have build an application which uses Calendar Control 11.0 which works great.  When the application is used by the guy testing it elsewhere the calendar shows for him but the font is size 2 so he cant see it properly.  Tried to change the font in properties but it wont let him.

We are both running 2003 but we can see that my Calendar Control is 11.0 and his is 9.0 which is probably the problem.  Can this be resolved? or does he need Calendar Control 11.0 and if so how can he get it?

One of the drawbacks of the calendar control is that it only works for other users with an identical version of office. if you have v11 that's office 2003, if he has v 9 that's office 2000

Can a file be downloaded with the Calendar Control 11.0 to his system?

For the basic fact that the person's Office is 2000 and Cal 11.0 is for 2003.....It may not cause any issues.....but it could.....

I have just asked what version of Excel 2003 he has because I have SP3.  This may shed some light.  Also is the FontStuff website a reliable website to be using?

yea, I've used that very page several times in my consulting work....
If he has Excel 2003, the n I would worry what SP he has.....just weird that he would have cal 9.0 with excel 2003.....
If you both have 2003, then follow the steps on FontStuff
I would reccommend renaming to downloaded mscal.ocx file to mscal11.ocx  and register it that way.  this way he keeps 9.0 along with 11.0

Shouldn't be....could be an advanced installtion of office....If he had office 2003, then you should have no problem added and running cal 11.0
