Problem with RICHTX32.OCX

I ask here for help in the problem I am facing with my VBA-application.
Namely RICHTX32.OCX (in windows\system32 -folder; versio nro: 6.00.8804; SP4)
is not functioning in my Excel-program. As the additional control, it refuses
to be added onto userform /-interface by informing that "The subject is not
trusted for the specified action". I have tried already the registration
statement: "regsvr32 \windows\system32\RICHTX32.OCX", which gives the message
"DLLregisterserver in \windows\system32\richtx32.ocx succeeded" as the sign
of succesful registration. But still it does not work. Can anyone there help
with this; what should I try next? - My operating system is XP with the
obviously latest updates installed.

then I was advised to download and install the current version ( 6.1.97.82)
of RICHTX32.OCX (from
http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6/richtx32.cab). It did not eliminate
the problem; the same message pops up "The subject is not trusted for the
specified action" in trying to drag the control onto a Userform. Does anyone
know what would solve the problem?

It the message more like this:
You don't have the license required to use this ActiveX control.

Do you have VB6 installed on the computer? If not, then you probably don't
have a design time license to use the control. Unfortunately, not all
controls are free for the taking. If you do have VB6 installed, then you
may need to fix your licenses.

If you are interested I can mail you a RichTextBox control that behaves just
like the regular one but doesn't have this security problem.

How do I, "Wrap the Rich TextBox control in another ActiveX control that does
not expose the unsafe properties and methods.", as suggested in KB 249150?
What might be a suitable wrapper control for this job? Do you just "paint"
the Rich TextBox inside the other control?

Interesting, never heard of that control.
Does it do the same as RichTX32.ocx?
Will it be available from Win98 upwards?
