More info is needed.  But if I had to guess, it sounds like you're target system has some incompatible dll's on it.  I've personally had this happen with vb4-32 but not THAT many times with vb5.  It is probably a control (i've had it happen with the tab control-in particular) but can be due to a ole-reference. Here is a procedure that will point you in the right direction: put very verbose error checking (logging or msgboxes) in your startup objects  and all of your form_load events and then try to run it on the bogus system.  Chances are you're using a form as a startup object and a control on it is not completely registered.  If it is a control - it will be obvious with the diagnostics.  You may then review the dependencies for that control on the working and non-working machines and correct any differences in the file versions, unregister the control, and re-register the control.

What's dependencies files? How to re-generate/change it? If the file versions arent correct, how to unregister the control, and re-register the control?

1) Open your VB5 form in a text editor (ie Notepad)
2) Near the top of the file will be a listing of some of the dll's, etc, used by the form & their classIDs, ie
Object={F9043C88-...}#1.1#0"; "COMDLG32.OCX"
3) Use the classid to find & compare registry keys.
4) Copy the correct file(s) &, if need-be, reg keys to the faulty machine. You prob won't need to re-register the file(s) yourself, it SHOULD be automatic, but the copied.reg keys should work
