Type AxDSOFramer.AxFramerControl is not defined

Hi experts,

I inherited a project that won't compile on my machine. It tells me "Type 'AxDSOFramer.AxFramerControl' is not defined". What is it and where can I find it?

Since this project used to compile OK on a different machine, could it be a problem I'm running Win7 64-bits?

regards,
Michiel

Forgot to specify. The project is in VB.NET and I'm using Visual Studio 2008 on a Windows 7 (64 bits) machine.

That looks like someone installed the DSO framer control, to host Office documents, and I have no idea if that was compiled for any platform, so you would need install the DSO framer, and try it on the 64-bit windows.  That is a pretty old library, and my guess is that it won't work in that environment.  I would start thinking about finding a new way to achieve a similar effect with something newer.

Sorry, forgot to close the question. The DSO Framer control won't work on 64-bits, is no longer supported by Microsoft and they haven't (nor are plannigng on) an alternative control.
So I ended up buying a component from a third party, which was pretty expensive.
