VBA mascomm error

VBA mascomm error

Hi All,

I m trying to create a VBA application in excel 2010.

My application requires serial port connection and hence i have downloaded MSCOMM32.ocx and had registered it under c:/windows/system32/MSCOMM32.ocx and c:/windows/SysWoW64/MSCOMM32.ocx
In the Toolbox of VBA using additional controls i selected the Microsoft communication control 6.0. The icon of serial port comm control got added in the toolbox.

Now when i drag the com port control to my form i get an error "The subject is not trusted for specified action".

I m using windows 10 OS.
please your help to fix this problem
