Problems deploying an application written in VB5.0 which utilizes this rather nice calender control shipped with VB5 (SP3 ?) called msacal70.ocx "Microsoft Access Calendar Control". Shipping program using MicroSoft VB Set-up wizard. Everything registers ok on destination PC except for this control. It replies that "An error occured while registering the file c:\windows\system\msacal70.ocx".
on launch OK until "Runtime error 339 msacal70.ocx not correctly registered. File is missing or invalid" which occurs as soon as the control is called from within the program. The quick fix was to install a minimal VB onto the destination PC. This worked. However installing it on any other PC causes this problem. Note! Access/Office NOT installed on destination PC. Anyone had similar problems. Yes I have checked that the setup wizard is used correctly and that it is definately referring to the control before making installation disks.
