There are two reasons that this doesn't work. Either the library isn't registered, or you are trying to set the properties directly in the control on the form instead of programmatically.

If it is the first, you will need to register the dll do this by opening any database, then go to Tools->ActiveX. On the ActiveX window, click Register, find the file, and click OK. Then it is registered on your PC.

Also make sure that you are not setting properties directly on the control on the form. Properties need to be set programmitcally in the code that calls the dialog.
