If the target computer already has vb5, comctl32.dll, etc installed, then you could just give them your exe. Unfortunatly, you can never be sure. If they do have a comctl32.dll, then as long as it is as current as the one you have, then you don't have to include it. Unfortunatly, you can never be sure.

So, you should always include all ocxs, dlls that you project references. That way if the target computer has an older dll/ocx or doesn't have a particular dll/ocx, then they will be given a copy. Otherwise, your program just won't work.
