PicClip License

Recently my machine crashed and I had to purchase a new machine.  I installed VB5 (Pro Edition) and all seems to work well except when it comes to PicClip32.
The problem is that a project I need to work on uses PicClip32.  When I load up the project and try to open the form that has the PicClip control, it tells me I don't have a license to open it in developement mode.

How do I refresh my "license list" so that it recognizes PicClip32?

Probably, this is the same problem as the following question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/comp/lang/visualbasic/Q.10067798

Here is the proposed answer of Mskannan

This problem occurs because,before you install VB5.0, you might have installed any application that created using VB5.0.So you will be having only license to read,not to create the control for use. While you install VB5.0,these will not be updated.

For this one, you better go to the following site and see for more instructions,
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q177/7/99.asp 

or a simple solution,
Just install VC++ and uninstall this one.Because of this,the license information of the ocx files will be overwritten.(which is not the case when we install VB5.0 which I tried to reinstall several times and faced the same problems.

Try this one and give your feedback.

Actually after I submitted this question, I decided to search the paqs and came up with 'Q.10062077' which says there is a file available from MS which will fix this problem.

The file (VBC.EXE) is available at:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q181/8/54.asp

Which, strangely enough, is where you get lead if you take Mskannan's proposal.

I haven't tested it out yet (the problem is at home, and I'm at work), but I do believe this will sove my problem so please re-post for points.  :)

I haven't tested it (I have no problem with my installation :) I hope it will continue), I saw that this possible solution could apply to you.
