I am using 3D gauge in my VB3.0 application, and I am trying to convert the application to VB5.0, but the guage does not convert properly.  Instead, it becomes a picture.

Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?

You are not doing anything wrong.  The gauge control was discontinued in VB5 in favour of the progress bar (part of common controls).

Your options include:
1. Find a copy of VB4 (which still has the gauge)
2. Replace your gauge (after conversion to VB5) with the progress bar.

Option 2 is prefered.
