On a DOS prompt, cd to your System dir, then exec this: regsvr32 comctl32.ocx
Your problems should be gone.
I used Kaneda's BMP2Tile, that generates a BIN file, and ASM sources... it's not too hard to replace a couple of dc.w with some datalong statements... the only issue is that i need to convert first the BMP to standard Window$ 16 color ugly pallete...

For the COMCTL32.ocx issue: Your OCX may be corrupt OR you may not pointing to the route.
Use this cmd: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\regsvr32.exe C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\COMCTL32.OCX Yes, point to the full path. Sometimes Windows cannot found the file in the actual path, so you must specify the full path. If you get this error again, consider to browse the M$ KB for get some help.
And for the BMP2TILE: i don't remember now how to use it... but look deeper in the readme file. Later i will post more detailed instructions, first i need to remember how to use it ;D
The plot grows progressively thicker I'm afraid. I'm in a virtual forest of 'plot' here!
Right, I just took a squint in the System folder and there is no COMCTL32.OCX
There is no COMCTL32.OCX at all!
I have me one Comctl32.dll, one Commctrl.dll and one sheepish looking Mscomctl.ocx
(that last one comes with the download)
All of these are registered sucsessfully but that dosn't seem to stop ImaGenesis from failing to load the non existant Comctl32.ocx
Why must Windows be so niggly? At least of this was Linux someone would have loftily declared me a newb, told me to read some irrelevent manuals and that would have been an end to it.
I'll take today to try and figure it out and then, rather than browse the Knowledge Base, I shall poke gingerly at the hard drive with a wet coat-hanger (as I'll probably achieve more productive results)
Thanks for taking the time to help, dude! BMP2TILE is rapidly shaping up to be the most painless solution I think...

COMCTL32.OCX are Common Controls v5.0 (from Visual Basic 5). MSCOMCTL.OCX are v6.0 (from VB6). it looks that Devster had some VB 5 program that installed such OCX, that DOES NOT come with Window$. In fact, no version of Window$ include such OCX, just the VB runtimes (i think that XP may include the controls...).
I got those libs from VB6 CD (it copies it when installing).
