That version of comctl32 is the one from Internet Explorer 5. The one
on the native Windows OS may have updates that are not available in
the one you specify, such as new or updated controls and

The issue was taking the comctl32 binary from a Windows installation,
not using an available installation program. Therefore, I believe the
support person was correct.
