  • I’ve tried 6 times in the last 12 hours to install DTPicker control in my newly downloaded version if O365 on my new machine with new Windows added security. Have done this many times b4 successfully with other laptops with no issues. DTPicker appeared in More Controls box and everything was fine.
    Followed these steps as before:

    to register mscomct2.ocx. download to download folder.
    Extract to desktop.
    Move file to c:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder.
    at admin command prompt (run using Powershel)l type at default prompt without changing directory
    regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\mscomct2.ocx

    FOR SOME REASON, THE CONTROL IS NOT APPEARING IN THE ACTIVEX CONTROL BOX.

    I can’t seem to figure out what’s wrong. I’ve completely disabled Windows Defender and the DTPicker is still not in the More Controls box.

    Please help, if anyone knows what’s wrong.

    Thx for anyone’s help. cr car1946@gmail.com
