I don't think you can convert. The Company which created the VBX will probably have the OCX version for it by now.

You can not convert VBX's to OCX's in any way. The developer of the VBX is the only one who can provide a compatible OCX control. However, you can still build your projects in VB3 under 32-bit platforms and run their compiled EXE under those platforms. Also, most programs that are developed in VB3 or VB4 under 16-bit platforms will work on 32-bit platforms if they are installed using the setup utility.

Kamall, any 16 bit project that is compiled with a 32 bit version of VB will not work unless there are 32 bit replacements for any 16 bit controls that are referenced in the project.

Kamall, I'm sure you knew that but your statement seemed a little unclear to me - so I thought I'd clarify it.
