Hi Raza,
The reason for this is that the computers that don't have VB 5.0 will most likely not have the components you need, nor will these components be registered.  To do this read below;

Deploying an ActiveX Document in Internet Explorer

You link to ActiveX documents from an HTML page with a combination of HMTL and VBScript. In the following example, an ActiveX document is reached from a hyperlink on an HTML page.
·      Use HTML to provide a link to the HTML page referencing the ActiveX document.
Since the ActiveX document will replace the HTML page in Internet Explorer, it's necessary to place the component's OBJECT tag on a separate HTML page, then jump to that page — which will promptly disappear when the ActiveX document has been loaded.
The following HTML code creates a hyperlink from the first page to the second (the one that downloads the ActiveX document):
<a href="Accounts.htm">View or update accounts</a>
      
·      Use HTML to provide a means for the browser to download, register, and navigate to the ActiveX document.
The following HTML fragment instructs Internet Explorer to download the ActiveX component and register the ActiveX document in the Windows registry:
<OBJECT
      classid="clsid:2F390484-1C7D-11D0-8908-00A0C90395F4"
      codebase="Accounts.cab#version=1,0,0,0">
</OBJECT>
      
The OBJECT tag in this example includes:
·      The ActiveX document's class ID so that it can be included or found in the Windows registry.
·      A CODEBASE attribute to tell the browser where to find the component if it's not already on the client machine (and a version number to check against for updating).
·      On the same page, place VBScript that instructs Internet Explorer to navigate immediately to the ActiveX document through its .vbd file (this file was created when the ActiveX document was compiled, and contains a pointer to the component providing the ActiveX document's objects).
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
Sub Window_OnLoad
      Document.Open
      Document.Write "<FRAMESET>"
      Document.Write "<FRAME SRC=""Accounts.vbd"">"
      Document.Write "</FRAMESET>"
      Document.Close
End Sub
</SCRIPT>
      
This code fragment contains only the name of the .vbd file is given, rather than a fully-qualified path.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Jason
