    I know mscomctl.ocx is a MS file, I know I didn't have it in my c:/windows/system32 folder before I ran the UBCD4Win 3.55 builder. The UBCD4win builder put it there, creation date is the same exact time and day I ran the builder. Why does it do this?

      It's the ActiveX control for "Microsoft Common Controls" and is needed for some of the installation and configuration utilities to work properly.

        Thanks for the answer. By the way when I built the project hashchecker ran and it could not download the hash file, I allowed it in my firewall. No big deal I manually checked the hash before I ran anything. Just wondering what was up with that.

          Whatever it is... is completely on your side of it... it works everywhere I've tested from.
          Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
