vb6 load problem

I have been running a VB6 application for several years on XP. I recently bought a window 7 computer and successfully loaded vb6 on windows 7. The program was running fine on windows 7. Out of the blue I get an "Error during load. refer to log" The log says "Line 15: Class MSComctlLib.ProgressBar of control pgbUpdate was not a loaded control class."

On it I also have 32 bit(I am sure) Office 10 pro installed.
