registering "mscomct2.ocx" on Ubuntu


I am a complete novice to Linux, just installed a dual boot Ubuntu on a pc at work as we are looking at testing it as an alternative to our current Windows OS.

The key issue is that we use M/S Access company wide for dated operations - sales orders, invoices etc - and this would need to work on Ubuntu. I have Access working through Crossover but the m/s Date function does not work. On Windows you need to install MsComct2.ocx to allow this. Can this be done on Ubuntu? And if so, please, how?

Thanks for your help.

Crossover should have a set-up wizard according to this site:
Don't know whether it covers your needs, too. Have you asked the crossover team? I don't really see its point if it doesn't provide any sort of customer service.

Hi, Jay,

Thanks for your reply, and sorry for the delay from me. We were working with a trial copy of Crossover and had to buy a copy from them before they would answer the question on this issue. I suppose there is no such thing as a free lunch.

We had the answer from them and we are testing the install now.
