The OLE server isn't registered.

"The OLE server isn't registered. to register the ole server reinstall it."  I've searched and looked at quite a few comments on this error, but most seem to be from several years ago.  I'm getting this error in Windows 7(64bit) and Office 2010.

My question is, is it still not recommended to use Active X controls in MS Access?

Not unless that control is certified for use in both Access AND on the platform (i.e. Win7 64 bit).

I seriously doubt any 3rd party controls will work on this platform, and the error you're getting would be the result of that. Nearly all (if not all) ActiveX controls are 32 bit, so they won't run on the 64-bit platform. If you need advanced capabilities that can only be derived from 3rd party controls and such, you'll need to move to the .NET languages, or something similar.
