absolute min. runtime files for VB5=?

In VB3, life was easy.  If you didn't use any extra controls and used only the standard textbox, label, combo box, etc. all you needed to run your *.exe was vbrun300.dll.  That was all.  But now we have VB5.  The standard controls seem the same, but the Application Setup Wizard likes to put quite a few more runtime-looking files in the install package.  My question is, if I'm only using the standard textbox, label, combo box, etc., then what are the only files that I have to include in my install package?  Do I really need all those OLE files and the others like msvcrt.dll?

Thank you.

OlePro32.dll
