Try reregistering the component using regsvr32.

Do you mean the Dll's ?
PhilippeRenaudAuthor Commented:
it is saying:  C:\Elk\9_....\bin\AxInterop.OWC11.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found.

this file can not be registered.

when I try to do instead:

regsvr32 "DLL C:\Elk\9_...\bin\AxInterop.OWC11.dll"
im having:

LoadLibrary("C:\Elk\9_....\bin\AxInterop.OWC11.dll") failed - The specified module could not be found

CodeCruiser, can you help me some more ?
Sorry mate I am out of ideas. I had this question open in my window since your last comment and I actually did some more research TODAY thinking I will post more info but could not find anything.
PhilippeRenaudAuthor Commented:
Can you maybe tell me why i cannot register and or unregister the dll?
That's probably because its not a COM component. The AX*** is a .NET assembly. Did you try regsvr32 on the OWC assembly itself?
PhilippeRenaudAuthor Commented:
what do I need to type to get OWC assembly itself?  not sure to understand
This would be in program files somewhere such as

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Components\11\OWC11.DLL

It was a little related to that. I found the solution. I went to microsoft update then tried again. not working.  I have deleted from add/remove programs the Office 2003 components. then re-install it. It was still not working I went back to microsoft update and now i was seeing updates for Office compenents. I installed them then tried again and now I could successfully open my form.
