Failed to load control 'ImageList' from MSCOMCTL.OCX. Your version of MSCOMCTL.OCX may be outdated

Getting this error in Expd8

In most cases isn't OCX file rewritten by an older version, but the older version is placed in some directory by an incorrect setup program and registered in this new place. So it is sufficient to unregister & register again. regsvr32.exe takes the right one from C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder.

Open CMD and run as admin and enter below command

Unregister and register mscomctl.ocx:

cd /d C:\Windows\SysWOW64
regsvr32 /u /s mscomctl.ocx
regsvr32 /s mscomctl.ocx
