One question: what happened to them? Are they still in VB5 and if so, where can I find them? If not, where can I get them?
Well, it wasn't one question :)

The gauge control is not part of MS Standard controls anymore.  You can get SHeridan Activethreed.   The progress bar is in Microsoft Common Controls.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

hmmm... perhaps it's left over from VB4 then because I've got it, but I haven't bought it or installed it separately.

I don't have it, so it must be.  I never installed vb4-32 (only used it once in my life, we do tons of 16 bit development at work and use vb5 for 32 bit)

Yep, that must be it then.  Sounds like there may be a couple of 32 bit OCX controls you could snatch from your VB4 CD.

yeah but be careful doing that..  Make sure they are ActiveX.  We have PDQComm 3.21 and it's not.  It works on my stand alone apps in vb5, but not on an activex container

Thanks for the help. I guess I'll have to reinstall VB432. I'll probably need to select the ocx manually. Do you know of the name of the ocx that came with vb4?
