When you run code that calls the Common Dialog Control
(Comdlg32.ocx) on a computer other than the one where the code was
developed, you may receive the following error message:
Run-time error 429: ActiveX component can't create object.
This problem can occur if the following conditions are
- The control is called from Visual Basic for Applications
code by using the New CommonDialog command.
- The computer from where you are running the code has a
run-time license instead of a design-time license for this control.
With a run-time license, you can load the control, but you
cannot create or insert it. The design-time license for this control is
included with the Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Edition, Microsoft Visual
Basic 6.0, and Microsoft Visual Studio. It is not included with other versions
of Microsoft Office 2000.
To work around this problem, wrap the control inside
another control, such as a UserForm. To do this, follow these steps:
- In the Visual Basic Editor, add a UserForm to your
- Insert a common dialog control on the UserForm. For
example, use the following code to call the common dialog control on the
- Save the workbook.
Because the control is wrapped in the UserForm and it resides
inside the project, you can now call it in run-time mode.
