Register MSCAL.OCX for Excel without Access presentHelpful Member!

I have an Excel spreadsheet which makes use of mscal.ocx via VBA.  I've copied it to a different machine which did not have mscal.ocx present.  I therefore copied mscal.ocx (and mscal.gid, .cnt, dep, .hlp) from my old machine to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM on the new machine (running Windows 98).  I then checked in the Excel VBA "Tools|References" to see that "Microsoft Calendar Control 8.0" was present and that it's box was ticked.

It still does not seem to be recognised by the spreadsheet.  I have seen instructions saying how to register mscal.ocx using Access, but this machine does not have Access and I'm not allowed to install Access on it!

Could some please confirm that this control can be registered without Access, and how this is to be achieved?

Thanks in advance,

Brian
