I'm using the MSChart control in vb and want to distribute my application. Where
can people get the MSChart ocx? I've got various references that point to a
component gallery at the microsoft website, but it no longer seems to exist. Can I
just distribute the ocx on my own?

Use the application Setup Wizard that comes with VB.  This will include all of the dependant files needed to run your application (which is probably more than just the mschart ocx), and automatically register and install all the ocx's you use.  VB does not compile a stand alone executable.  Also, just putting the ocx in the users directory will not work, the control has to be registered.
