regsvr32 and grid32.ocx

Hello,
Using VB 5.0, I created simple program that displays information using the MS Grid control. I used the setup up wizard to create installation disketes. However when I try to install the program on another machine I get an error msg about not being able to register grid32.ocx. So then I try to do it manually using the regsvr32 file and that give me an error stating that it is not a valid dll file.
The weird thing is that I am also using other controls, such as the pull tabs, which present no problem at all.
Anyone experience this b4?

Thanks
marcelo

Hmm, I don't even have grid32.ocx on my system (VB5 professional).  I think the latest grid control is msflxgrd.ocx.  You might try using that instead.

msgrid.ocx is not an activeX control, it's an old style OLE control, and from what I hear, can't be run in VB5.  Use FlexGrid, it's similar.

thanks for your help...
But... If OLE controls are no longer suported by VB 5.0 then why is the original grid control still offered as a control from the VB control options? And further still... why would VB 5.0 even let you use it?

Oh well, I'll use flex grid instead and hope that works!
Thanks!
