I created a VB5 application that runs fine on one computer, but got (unexpected error 5003) on another as soon as the application was started.  The application does not use any extra components except for msvbvm50.dll.  What can cause this error?

A statement like:

err.Raise 5003,"AnyObject","Outside VB's defined errors, to bad someone isn't giving more info here!"

In the first procedure that's being place the following:
Msgbox "It made it to Sub Main"
At the end of that procedure place one like this:
MsgBox "Exiting Sub Main"

Compile and test.  Sometimes this is the only way.  Using this method, you can narrow it down to the line.  Once you do, comment with the line, then if you can't figure out what's wrong with it, post it in a comment here.

The error number was really 50003 not 5003, but I don't think this will help much.

I'm assuming you found what was causing it though, right?

Problem: "Run-time error 50003" or "System error &H800040005".
Cause: Computer has an outdated comctl32.ocx file.
