Hi Experts,

I have been chasing this error around for about a week. I send out a access application once a year to different user and machine configurations. The app runs in XP and Win 7 and uses access 2003, 2007 or 2010.

THe install is an easy install. But I have ran into some Win 7 64 bit machines that after the app is install when you call access you get the following error.

2683 there is no object for this control

Alot of references on the web but vage. What I think may be the problem is the references in my access program may be calling libs that do not exist in the client machine. The software of course installed on my win7 64 bit machine w/o problem. I cannot reproduce the error.

I had one client that installed the software on a machine using standard office 2010 and received the error. Then installed the software on a laptop with home version of office 2010 and it worked???

Any help or ideas of if this has happen on someone else would be great.

    May be you have this problem when not only Windows 7 is 64 bit, but also office is 64 bit?

    Found the fix a user downloaded the xp mode and installed and the program installed and ran w/o problems. The reason it worked for me we that my 64 bit machine had the xp mode installed.
