Default error 'File format no longer supported'


I have a problem where if I select any of the Microsoft Windows Common Controls??? 6.0 in the adding of components, I get the error message "File format no longer supported".

Does anyone know a solution to this?

P.S. I've tried to reinstall VB 6.0 + SP5 with no effect

Try deleting the .oca file that belongs to the problem control, then re-add the component.

Good luck
