Lots of ActiveX COM Controls are missing in "Choose Items" ?

Hi,

I currently have VB 2005 Express on my old Vista PC installed. The
problem is, though i have lots of ActiveX controls registered on the
system, i can only see "Microsoft Office Outlook" controls in Toolbox-
Choose Items->COM Components. Lots of COM ActiveX controls are
missing. (such as Windows Media Player Control, Shockwave Flash
Control)

Same problem seems reported by user named "MetalTim" on that link:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Fo...s/thread/542bca77-9942-4680-8552-af3b17cfe901

I have another PC having VB 2005 Express on XP SP2, no such issue. All
COM components are listed.

Is there a workaround on this?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!


Note: Resetting Toolbox didn't work.

Ralpugan,

May I ask you why you reinstall VB2005 express when VB 2010 Express is free.
You can all versions after 2005 point to framework 2.0

I didn't re-install. It was already installed before VS 2010 was
released.

However, don't you have any solution about the problem?

Can it be incompatibility between VB 2005 Express (and VS 2005 of
course) and Vista?

Thanks.

Hello Rapulgan ,

For the full blown version of Visual studio there was a servicepack wich
solved all Vista related issues with VS 2005 ( servicepack 1)
however i recently installed Visual studio 2010 on my Windows 7 system and
discovered that a lot of anoyances have dissapeared

As with VS 2010 i can still target framework 2.0 i do not see anny reasson
to stick with VS 2008 and have just mooved on ( VS 2010 is my servicepack on
the 2008 version )
why do you not do the same thing with your express version ?

install the SP and your problems should be solved

If i were you i would move to the latest version of Visual studio ( unless
you need to maintain framework 1 apps )

Hi Michel,

Thanks for your suggestions, however installing Visual Basic 2005
Express Service Pack 1, and plus Visual Studio 2005 Update For Vista
didn't work. Still a lot of COM controls are missing when you select
"choose items" in Vista.

Isn't there another solution or why is it?

Thanks,

ralpugan

Hello Ralpugan

Well the servicepacks should have resolved the issues that are known to
break VS 2005
so i run out of options , do you run VS as an Administrator ? as Vista might
prevent the access of certain registry values as COM is registred this
might be the issue
