Computer Tip: VBA error after installing Microsoft security update MS12-060

Microsoft release security update MS12-060 on August 14. This security update replaced security update MS12-027. If you see the error “Unspecified Automation Error” when running your Microsoft Office VBA code after installing MS12-060, you need to re-register MSCOMCTL.OCX. To do this, follow these steps:

1. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, open an administrative-level command prompt. To do this, click on the Start menu, scroll in the menu and find the Accessories folder. In the Accessories folder look for Command Prompt.
Right click on Command Prompt and then left click on Run as administrator. A black command prompt opens in a window.

2. If the error is on a 64-bit machine, type the following:

regsvr32.exe /u  C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MSCOMCTL.OCX
regsvr32.exe  C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MSCOMCTL.OCX

If the error is on a 32-bit machine, type the following:

regsvr32.exe /u C:\Windows\System32\MSCOMCTL.OCX
regsvr32.exe C:\Windows\System32\MSCOMCTL.OCX

See the security bulletin http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/MS12-060 for further information.
