Run time error Run-time error “339”

Installed clock face designer on a windows 2000 server in a folder. The program runs ok on the server but when I try to access the program from a workstation I’m getting the following error message;
Run-time error “339”
Component “mscomct2.ocx” or one of its dependencies not correctly
registered: a file is missing or invalid.

The clock designer needs to be installed individually on each machine. If you run the clock deisgner.exe (on the server) from the client, it wont work as the .ocx files needed are not registered on that machine. For advanced network installation, the Microsoft Windows Installer provides alternative methods for creating and advertising network installations, in particular using msiexec with the appropriate command line switches.
To speed installation there are a number of tricks detailed in the network installation guide
