Grid control question

I have VB5.0  I designed an application to update several access databases.  I used a grid control to bring the queries from access into vb.  It works fine on my computer.,but when I try to use the program on another computer, I get an runtime error that says grid.ocx is not registered.  How do I resolve this problem.  I thought when I create an exe, it should run on any computer without installing extra files.  Plse let me know what I need to do!

Thanks

Unfortunately, Visual Basic does not create stand-alone executables. You will always have to install extra files on another machine if they are not already present or if they are out of date. Your best bet is to always use setup wizard to create an installer which will perform the steps required to copy the relevant files, perform version checking, and component registration.
