Converting VB3 to VB4

Having terrible trouble persuading VB4 to load VB3 projects so's I can upgrade them to 32-bit. Errors are numerous:

1. In trying to load forms with 3D-panels (which used threed.vbx in VB3) I'm being told 'cannot find VBX.SSPANEL', despite the fact that I've said
'yes' to upgrading this and other other controls when asked and all the 3D ('Sheridan') controls are already incorporated into the project.

I can't even load a simple test form containing one panel. VB4 gives an error message and changes the panel to a picturebox instead.


2. In trying to load forms with 'Sheridan's' SSIDXTAB.VBX you can forget it! I just end up with garbage.

In both cases I get error log files telling me that: 'Class SSPanel of control panFix was not a loaded control class.' and 'Class SSIndexTab of control tabChart was not a loaded control class.' respectively???????????

I did initially get error messages regarding files saved as binary rather than text so I've re-saved all files as text.

Can anyone help?

Gordon.

Did you installed VB4.0 over 3.0 or did you removed VB3.0 first ?
It could give problems when you overinstall 3.0 with 4.0 .

Open your Project
Go to Menu TOOLS => 'Custom Controls'
and try to insert all custom controls tou have there.
(I think you must only 'Sherridan 3d Controls' But Try to insert all of them.)
After it you may run your program.
If all would be OK So Make 'Save Project'
