I am looking for a stable datepicker tool for MS Excel 2010. This tool should not use the MSCOMTL.ocx, or an activeX. It should work for 32 bit and 64 bit.

It needs to be a stable one. I have bad experiences with the treeview control. If a machine is updated, there are always problems.

well always when you consider non basic standard controls then you need to ensure you can update the machine with the .dll or ocx when needed.

There nothing called stable or not stable. There are rules for upgrade that one has to follow and when not then you get errors like can't load this or that object and then you need to make sure the ocx is installed on the machine and make sure you simply register it before trying to open the file. That's simple as this.

Outside all this you need then to stick to standard controls.
