Visual Basic question

We've developed an application which runs and installs fine on our development machine, the problem arises when we try to install on somebody elses machine.  During the setup stage (created by setup-wizard) we recieve several error messages:

Cannot load (or register) custom control GRAPH16.OCX
Cannot load (or register) custom control DAO2516.DLL
Could not read from file MSAJT200.DLL

We have definitely included these during compilation, what would give these kind of errors and how do we go about fixing it?

We are using Visual Basic V4.0

Been there !

Files needed to perform the registration of a OCX and DLL files are missing in the definition of software dependencies.

If the target computer does not have VB or VC installed the setup program will
fail to register the OCX,DLL files.

I'm sure you can get a complete file from somewhere, but as I view a compare between my old file and my working file these are the changes:

The files missing are: msvcrt.dll and msvcirt.dll

Add two sections somwhere in the file mine are located after
the "[MSVCRT40.DLL]" section as.

[MSVCRT.DLL]
Register=
Dest=$(WinSysPath)
Uses1=
[MSVCIRT.DLL]
Register=
Dest=$(WinSysPath)
Uses1=

Add these files under the "VB Runtime section" as

[VB Runtime 0409-32]
Register=
Dest=$(WinSysPath)
Uses1=VB40032.DLL
Uses2=ven2232.olb
Uses3=olepro32.dll
Uses4=msvcrt20.dll
Uses5=msvcrt40.dll
Uses6=ctl3d32.dll
Uses7=msvcrt.dll
Uses8=msvcirt.dll

But make a backup before, I dont want to destroy your system.
Hope this helps !
