Problem subclassing progress bar in ocx

I have created an activex (ocx) in vc5 with
default wizard options except it subclasses
the progress bar common control.

I tested this control in VB's IDE and it
worked correctly. However when I compile
the VB program I get error 0x80004005. I
found I could get around this by including
a hidden progress bar on the form.

I have traced the error in VC and it seems
that the controls window is not created.

Has anybody seen a similar problem?

Is there some kind of initialisation or
registering required for the common
control dll?

Try adding InitCommonControls() in your application's constructor.
