  • CitectHMI 5.xx, 6.XX

I can't view MS Forms ActiveX controls in the CitectSCADA runtime, as I don't have them installed. Is there a way of installing and registering these controls without installing another software package that provides them, such as Microsoft Office?

The following Microsoft Knowledge Base article explains the problem and a workaround.

This problem occurs as the relevant OCX files are not installed on your computer, the Knowledge Base article above provides a link to the Microsoft ActiveX Control Pad. Downloading this and installing it on your computer should fix the problem.
