The file is located in the rebirth zip file.

Maybe you have a corrupted file?
Try clearing yous browser's cache and re download the zip file again.

Thx Red, I found it.

<off topic (Hey it's my string)> OOF Editor won't run. Complains of this Message:
Quote:
"Run-time error '429'
ActiveX component can't create object"

Tried running in XP SP3 Compat mode, it then complained of a comctl32.ocx file missing. D/L that file, put in the root folder of the app and still no dice. Thoughts?

ActiveX components usually need to be registered before they can be loaded - location doesn't matter much - though I'm not sure whether there are differences in behavior or procedure for .ocx files (I've mostly worked with newer .dlls).

Usual command (best run as administrator since it edits the registry): regsvr32 <file>

If it gives you an error about not being able to find an entry point or similar, that means I'm wrong and this is not the way to do it for this file :)
