Custom Control Dll error

I am working with a *.mak file created in VB 3.0.  The project runs fine on one PC but when I try to run it on another one I get the following error:

Can't load custom control dll for SSDATA2.VBX.

When I try to load the vbx by using "add file" I still get the same message.  The file is in a directory but it just won't load if i try to load it on any other pc but my own.

Also any suggestions for an introductory programming book you could recommend. Something that isn't specific to one language but gives some of the basics of programming.

Hmm...just asking...That PC that was able to run the program, was it the same PC that you built the program on?

The program was not written on the PC that is able to run the mak file.  The mak only runs on two PC's but the EXE runs fine from any pc. :)

Heheh...no problem..sorry again...
Anyway..here's another try.....Manually edit your VBX file....Since i'm using VB4 I was checking my OCX file....I'm not sure if its the same or not between the 2, and I found the dependancies by searching for "DLL".Hopefully this would work

Does VB3 generate a .log file that has expanded error info like VB4 and 5 does?
If so look at that it might explain it further.

Also Sheridans DataWidgets (SSDATA2.VBX) files require a licence file to be copied along with the control. I think the extention is .LIC and might be found in you windows\system directory

Thnaks for the help.  The *.lic file was missing.
