What is comctl32.ocx?

Part of COMCTL by Microsoft

What is it?

COMCTL is a Microsoft Common Controls Object. A common control is a child window that an application uses in conjunction with another window to enable interaction with the user. Most common controls belong to a window class defined in the common control DLL. The window class and the corresponding window procedure define the properties, appearance, and behavior of the control.
Description of comctl32.ocx from Microsoft
Visual Basic version 5.X common controls were contained in two .OCX files: ComCtl32.ocx and ComCt232.ocx. Both of these files called into the ComCtl32.dll file, a system file, for functionality. The new control versions are contained in two new files: MsComCtl.ocx and MsComCt2.ocx.

How is comctl32.ocx loaded?

Safe for scripting control - comctl32.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {0713E8A2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7} with and identifier of CLSID\{0713E8A2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - comctl32.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {0713E8A2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7} with and identifier of CLSID\{0713E8A2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
Automation object - comctl32.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {0713E8A2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7} with and identifier of CLSID\{0713E8A2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7}\Implemented Categories\{40FC6ED5-2438-11CF-A3DB-080036F12502}. Automation objects are referred to as ActiveX objects.
