    Have you done some research on this?
    It seems to be a very common problem.
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-files/comctl32ocx-error-in-windows-7/051b2862-b4a1-45fc-aad8-140ed32dc682

    Here are two steps you may try.
    Step 1: Re-register the component.
    Verify if comctl32.ocx is in C:\windows\system32 folder. If you, you may try re-registering the file.
    1.     Go to start and type cmd.
    2.     Right-Click on cmd and select ďRun as AdministratorĒ.
    3.     Type regsvr32 comctl32.ocx and press Enter.
    If successful you should get a popup saying "DllregisterServer in
    comscl32.ocx succeeded"
    Did you already do that?

      What is reg command? I don't know what that means.
      The right command is regsvr32.

        OK. This is a component of Microsoft Office, -Right?

        If not, I am on the wrong track. Sorry

        On the MS forums users who got the same issue got the run-around from the 'experts' from MS.
        You would think that if there was a simple answer, they would give it.
        This looks better:

        Do you install Windows 7 32bit version or Windows 7 64bit version?
        1.     Please go to Event Viewer, click Applications and see if any error is logged.
        2.     It seems that the MSCOMCTL.OCX isnít correctly registered or that it isnít compatible with your Windows. Please open a Command Prompt and run as Administrator, then type the following command:
        Regsvr32 MSCOMCT2.OCX

        If you are using Window7 64bit, try typing:
        Regsvr32 c:\windows\SysWOW64\MSCOMCT2.OCX

        If the issue still persists, letís download a new MSCOMCTL.OCX and register it again. You can download the MSCOMCTL.OCX from the following link:
        .....

        Scroll down the page and find a link  labeled:
        Msconctl.zip
        I have not tried this.
        Please report back if that is the aright answer.
        I will assume it is not the right answer.

          IF you are on a 64-bit system, comctl32.ocx won't be in the C:\Windows\System32 folder; it will be in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder.

          Try running regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\comctl32.ocx and see how that goes.

          Also this is an excellent example of why Register Cleaners suck.

          I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

              You need to run regsvr32 from an elevated command prompt. (Right-click, Run-as Administrator)

                  You've said "comctl.ocx" twice now. It's comctl32.ocx, just to be clear.

                  In an elevated command prompt, the command should be:

                  Code: [Select]
                  C:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32.exe C:\windows\syswow64\comctl32.ocx

                  yes it is 64bit. so i place comctl32.ocx in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and use run (regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\comctl32.ocx) is that right
                  Placed? You shouldn't be placing files anywhere. Windows 7 includes both versions of the file.
