I just did a complete reinstall of NT 4.0 and Visual Basic 5.0 Pro. But now when I try to use any of the controls from Comctl32.ocx like the toolbar, status bar, etc. I get the error:
"License information for this component not found. You do not have an appropriate license to use this functionality in the design evnironment."

I've tried reinstalling VB again but no luck. What did I do wrong or miss?

Probably you have the wrong OCX version: take a look you need
Comctl32.ocx with the date 28-02-97 15:23.

Try running VisualBasic 5.0 Setup, Press UNINSTALL & when the UNINSTALL completed, restart your computer.
After it, install again VisualBasic 5.0 to OTHER FOLDER.
On my computer it works!!!
