License information for Winsock Activex control

When I try to add a Winsock control (Microsoft Winsock Control 5 MSWINSCK.OCX) to a form I get a message saying:
"License information for this component not found. You do not have the appropriate license to use this functionality in the design enviroment.

Any ideas how to fix that?

Same thing happens with an Inet control (Microsoft Internet Transfer Control 5.0 MSINET.OCX)

I'm using Visual Basic 5.0 Professional, both OCX's come with it.

Try this tech support article.

This is what is states as the cause, "When a control is installed for run-time use only (such as those installed by an application created with Visual Basic), if the Visual Basic Development Environment is installed onto the same machine afterwards and the existing control is of equal or higher version than that from the CD, the license key for that control is not updated. "

Here is one solution, I recommend that you read the whole article just in case there is another solution for you.

1. Locate Regsvr32.exe on your machine. Note its path.

2. Locate the offending OCX file(s), usually found in the Windows\System folder for Windows 95 and Windows 98, or the Windows\System32 folder for Windows NT.

3. On the Start menu, click Run.

4. In the Run dialog box, type the following:
<Path to RegSvr32>\REGSVR32.EXE /u <Path to OCX>\OCXFILE.OCX

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each offending OCX.

6. On Control Panel, click Add\Remove Programs.

7. Select Visual Basic, and click Add\Remove.

8. Click Reinstall when the options (Add\Remove, Remove All, Reinstall) dialog box appears.

This should help you out.

Using "regsvr32 /u" didn't help at all.
