Okay, well since those ideas didn't work let's start from the beginning...
1. Access version
2. Are you loading a Runtime or Full Install
#. UAC Off or On?
I will say this is one of the reason I have stayed away from .OCX

I placed the new OCX file in System32
the call to DllRegisterServer failed with
error code 0x8002801c.
I looked it up but this is all far too complicated for me...
I downloaded Process Monitor and ran it but don't know what to do with
Hope you can help

Try some non OCX alternatives.
See the Calendar Tips page at my website
There could, likely will, be lots of version problems when you go to
distribute the MSCal.OCX..
One alternative is MonthCalendar is a completely API generated Month
Calendar derived directly from the Common Control DLL. There are
links to several downloadable calendar forms at my website. As these
are forms you can also do anything with them you want.
You can also use the calendar form which comes in the Access <insert
your version here> Developers Handbook by Litwin/Getz/Gilbert,
publisher Sybex www.developershandbook.com. These books are well
worth spending money. Every time I open one I save the price of the
Duane Hookum has an awesome and simple calendar in a report. See the
Calendar Reports sample section at
As far as MSCOMCT2.OCX goes I don't know what you are using it for but
if you tell us maybe we can give you some suggestions.
