VB5 don't have 3d sheridan controls with it. You can use the ones from VB4, or download them from sheridan. However, there is absolutely no need in using them in VB5, everything already has a 3d look, and every control can be implemented very easily

Sheridan does not support it's 3d controls that comes bundled with VB 4.0 anymore. However a copy of Visual Basic 5 should still come with Sheridan 3D control although it is not installed automatically.
To install the Sheridan controls,
go to the Tools/Controls directory of your Visual Basic 5 CD and the readme.txt file should give you instruction on installing the controls.

The sheridan controls uses Threed32.ocx.

Just follow these steps.
1. Copy Threed32.ocx to your \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory
2. Register the control by browsing to them in Visual Basic or using
RegSvr32 (located in Tools\RegistrationUtilities).
"RegSvr32 C:\Windows\System\Threed32.ocx.
3. License the control by typing
"regedit vbctrls.reg" in the same directory the .ocx is located in your VB CD.

Hope this helps.
