It’s occur when the following statement are right.

This problem can occur if the following conditions are true:

  • If VB for applications code by using the New CommonDialog Command.
  • Where you from running your computer the code has a run-time license instead of a design-time license for this control.
  • Some time it can occur for windows update.
  • Lower version of DirectX.

Among a run-time license, you can load control, but you cannot insert or create. Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Edition, VB 6.0 and MS Visual Studio is included with the design-time license for control but not included other versions of MS Office 2000.


Here you just follow my steps:

  1. In Visual Basic Editor, you have to add a UserForm into your project.
  2. Enter a common dialog control on the UserForm. Ex: use the below code.

Sub test()


End Sub

3. Now, Save your work book.

4. The reason is the control is wrapped in the UserForm, it resides into the project.

If it is occur for windows update problem then you have to restore your window update. If you are using windows XP then go to this link for restoring your update.

If its occur for DirectX, then go to this link and update your DirectX before the install your program, or if you install your program then please uninstall it and update your DirectX and then install your program.

Thank You.
