So I am working on excel 2010 64bit on Win8 64bit, programming a macro and trying to create a form containing a date picker (calendar).
This is not an inbuild control anymore, as it used to be.

OK, googled, downloaded the corresponding ocx, and tried to register it. Did not work.
OK, googled, learned that you need "super admin privileges" (I was already admin in the previous step). Fine. Registered. Date pciker did not show up in excel.
OK, googled, learned that you need to add the control in the reference list. Did that. Date pciker still did not show up in the additional controls.
OK, googled, and finally learned that MS has not provided a 64bit version of the common controls yet. Would have worked in any other combination OS32/Office32, OS64/Office32, but not OS64/Office64.

WTF | :WTF:

The only thing useful in all this, is that I learned that when you go in the bottom left corner and right-click in Win8, a super context menu appears with a lot of useful shortcuts.
