I have a VBX known as VBMSG.VBX and need it in the OCX
32 bit format.  Is there a program/way to convert a VBX?
If not, how can I get it converted?

Only the company that made the VBX will either have or not have a "migration utility" that can convert your project 's VBXs into OCXs (and/or convert the project's code to use the OCX).  Of course, you'll need to have installed the OCX first.

It also depends on how compatible the VBX is with the OCX - since the VBX architecture is so different from the OCX architecture, I think you'll find that automatic conversion is not provided in many cases.

Hope this helps.
