Done - it had been removed.

Done - there was no copy remaining on the system.

Nope - same results.

I've had a poke about the registry, and it looks as though the control is
being registered - at any rate there are entries for


Unregistering and re-registering the ocx using RegSvr32 does not seem to
help. Neither does replacing version 2.00.39 of the OCX from the
installation with version 2.00.41 from the binaries in CVS (unregistering
and re-registering before/after replacement).

Trying to run pgAdmin with the OCX unregistered produces exactly the same
result. Trying to run it if the OCX has been unregistered and _deleted_
causes the install to run and replace the missing file before running
pgadmin (which then fails as "normal").

Any more ideas?
