This error “mscomct2.ocx version 2.0” has been shown due to “missing: microsoft windows common controls-2 6.0 (sp4)” does not installed. You can download Microsoft Windows Common Controls-2 6.0 from the given Microsoft Web site link:

After this you cannot find this error. Hope this answer is helpful to you.
