Hello people,

I just installed Mp3Gain 1.2 Beta and when I start the program
I only receive this error message and nothing happens:

"Failed to load control "ImageList" from MSCOMCTL.OCX.
Your version of MSCOMCTL.OCX may be outdated.
Make sure you are using the version of the control that was
provided with your application."

I am using Windows 2000 with SP2 installed, the version number
of the MSCOMCTL.OCX is 6.0.88.92, dated May 11, 2000.
I have tried using and older version, 6.0.84.98, dated May 14,
1999, I believe and I have also tried with version 1.0 (stable),
neither worked.

Done a lot of searching on Google and on Microsoft, neither has
a newer version that I could find and after talking about this on
another forum I heard that some other people have had the
same problem, but apparently they had no solution either.

Anyone else have this problem?
I can't think of anything that would cause this, but I do have
quite a few tweaks to the system, so if you have any idea what
could cause this, that would be great, thanks in advance.

Did you install the full version (and not normal)? The files should be included with that.

I built MP3Gain using Win2K SP2. My copy of MSCOMCTL.OCX is 6.0.88.62, dated May 11, 2000.

Just in case there's something strange in your copy of MSCOMCTL.OCX, I've uploaded a copy of the file directly from my machine:

http://home.comcast.net/~snelg/mp3gain/MSCOMCTL.zip

Unzip that file directly into your MP3Gain folder and try again. If it still doesn't work, then... uh, I'm not sure yet...

Nope, didn't help either, hmm, this is odd.

Anything else that could cause it, maybe that is not causing the error?
Maybe it's just reporting it wrong, I don't even think there is a newer
version of that ocx?
And since you build it with it, I see no reason for it not to work with it.

I wonder if it is somehow related to not having IE?
But then, I had the same problem when I did have it, I used
IEradicator to remove it, I wonder if that removes something that
could effect it and it isn't replaced with a new install of IE?

Here's what IEradicator removes, from the readme file:

THIS FILE WILL UNCONDITIONALLY DELETE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING
DIRECTORIES AND ALL FILES THEY CONTAIN WITHOUT PROMPTING.
BACKUP ANY PERSONAL FILES YOU MAY WANT TO KEEP; INTERNET
EXPLORER "FAVORITES" WILL BE DELETED IN THIS OPERATION SO
BACK THEM UP IF NEEDED.

ENGLISH
%root%\program files\internet explorer
%root%\program files\uninstall information
%windir%\application data\microsoft\internet explorer
%windir%\application data\microsoft\welcome
%windir%\catroot
%windir%\cookies
%windir%\desktop\online services
%windir%\downloaded program files
%windir%\favorites
%windir%\history
%windir%\java
%windir%\subscriptions
%windir%\temporary internet files
%windir%\web
%windir%\system\oobe
%windir%\system\catroot
%windir%\occache
%root%\program files\common files\triedit

Could there be something in one of that affects Mp3Gain?

Sorry, I'm really not sure. My best guess is that mscomctl.ocx depends on another file, and _that_ file is screwed up on your computer.

I'm really not an expert at all the myriad inner workings of Windows, but when I get back to my laptop I can at least try doing a dependency check on mscomctl.ocx to see what files it depends on.

@Snelg

Don't worry about this anymore, I installed my system again cos
of some other stuff and now MP3Gain works fine again, I didn't
remove IE tho, so that might have something to do with it as well.

I'm glad you got it fixed, even if I didn't help smile.gif
