Our project team occationally gets a "Runtime 50003 Error" on some machines.  As far as we have been able to find, it is related to .gif files, which apparently VB5 doesn't like.  We have nuked the one .gif we had, and are still getting the error.  Any ideas?  Suggestions?  

Thanks!

This can be a Furfy (aussie term for something that isn't what it appears to be).  It can be caused by COM when the registration information for an object (usually a VB .EXE automation server) is for a different version of the file on disk, but other component are expecting the previous version.  It happens when you don't update an automation server correctly.

Does this make sense to your application ?
