VB4 code does me absolutely no good. I need VB3 standard 16-bit code please...I've asked a question before regarding playing AVI's in VB3 standard (16-bit) and they responded with some good code...but it used mci.ocx, which I apparently don't have. So where can I get this file, and
if I can't get it free, do I need it? Is there another way to play an avi in a control box/image box that I can do? Also is there a way within the AVI playing code to tell it to play a file with ANY extension and treat is as an AVI? Basically if I had an avi renamed to a dll or something I need to be able to play it. Lastly...I'm attempting to do a screen saver, and I've looked at the few examples on the net and have found them to be confusing...all I really need is the proper code to load my exe (as an src)into windows control panel with a setup option.
I'll increase this to 40 points if I get a good answer.
