    Hi, I'm develping an MS Access application which uses some Active X controls that come with Windows service pack 4. The problem is my customer is using Win XP. I thought these controls would already be there but they're not. I see a XP SP1 update but am not sure what to do.

    Can I install SP4 onto WinXP

    Thanks for any help

    No, you can't install WinNT sp4 on WinXP
    Or was it Win2k sp4 beta you meant? If so, the answer's still "no".

    What are the actual ActiveX Controls / *.ocx files?
    Can they be downloaded separately from the MicroSoft ActiveX Gallery?
    Can't you just copy them from the current source to the System32 dir in WinXP?
