    tabctl32.ocx is a "control" or to put it in easier terms, is what can be used to make a program look a certain way. This control allows a program to display the different tabs you may see. Definition: (tabctl32.ocx is an ActiveX control module which contains SSTab control used for Tabbed Dialog Control)

    If it is giving you an error about that control, it means that the program can't find it.

    Try looking at this link and follow the steps: http://www.ascentive.com/support/new/support_dll.phtml?dllname=TABCTL32.OCX


    It will walk you through how to download and replace the tabctl32.ocx file.

    If you don't feel safe about replacing your exisiting tabctl32 file, just save the file you download in the same place that the program is running from.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Try this.

    You need the exact file path to where you saved the tabctl32.ocx (i.e. c:\documents and settings\owner\desktop\new folder\tabctl32.ocx) or whatever yours is

    1) Click Start
    2) Click Run

    3)Type this in: Regsvr32 c:\documents and settings\owner\desktop\new folder\tabctl32.ocx

    *Remember, use the file path to where YOU saved it. Not what I posted above, that is just an example
