OCX Error 372 (Failed to load control)
Posted on 2012-05-30
We have a legacy vb6 app that is still running. Every once in a while, we'll get a "failed to load control" <control> from name.ocx. Your version may be outdated.
We are manifesting the file and there should only ever be one version of the DLL.
1) We are running it off of a mapped drive
2) Error most commonly appears when a user uses a different computer than the one they are normally logged into.
EG: User A is logged off, User B logs in, runs app, error.
So far it's not consistently reproducable. If we wait for a while (approx 15 minutes or so . . . and/or a couple of reboots) the problem goes away.
Information is coming from users so is sporatic and questionable at best . . . but trying to narrow down the places to look.
Thanks in advanced.
