Hi, I use this Microsoft Common Dialog control to select files in my custom

task form. Works great, but on some other computers, it doesn't work and

throws up an error. How come it works on some computers, and some not. I

had to load Visual Studio on my computer to get the control to work, but

most people aren't going to have Visual Studio on their computer. What am I

missing. Do I need to use another control?

Thanks for your help,

Joel

What language is your code in?

Are you using the common dialog OCX?

Could this problem be happening on Vista systems?

Vista does not have the common dialog OCX installed by default as part of

the OS installation, unlike say Windows XP, which does have it installed as

part of the VB runtime.

You can either deploy the OCX as part of your installer package, or use the

underlying common dialog DLL in your code instead of the OCX.
