vcf132.ocx registry problem

I "wrote" an application that uses the formula 1 workbook
(Borland 3rd party visual component recieved with VB..looks like excel worksheet). On my computer it works like a charm, but when I try to install it onto someone else's computer (using VB's setup wizzard) an error saying "ERROR REGISTERING vcf132.ocx" is displayed.
When executing the application it also says "vcf132.ocx missing/invalid or registered incorrectly". It is there, and it is definitely valid (same as on my computer). Even Microsoft SA could not help me and we're a bit pressed for time!

VB Version: VB 5.0
VC Version: Formula One 3.0
OS: Windows 95
Setup Wizzard Version:Unknown...Came with VB 5.0

  vcf132.ocx also refer other DLL. Your VB5 setup should have include oleaut32.dll and olepro32.dll which needed by it. You could included msvcrt.dll, msvcirt.dll in your setup disks. If this still not work, include mfcans32.dll and oc30.dll in your setup disks. Then reintall your app. again.

   If your machine got vcf132.dep, then you could check for its dependency. Or you could use dumpbin, tdump to check what other file formula one needed to distribute the OCX.

   Hope this help.

Hello "yowkee"

You are good!!!
oleaut32.dll,olepro32.dll and msvcrt40.dll was already in the setup. I don't have msvcirt.dll on my computer, but I included mfcans32.dll and oc30.dll from c:\windows\system and it did the trick!

Please answer the question so I could award you those 200 points!
Many TNX for your great help!!!!

Riaan,
  I could answer just because I face the problem before, and
I use Formula One 3.0 too :). It seem the vendor spend less attention to this version. BTW, as I know the vendor is PowerSoft.
