Hi jjung,

Chances are, you already have everything you need. From within Visual Basic, Select Project/References. Look for Wang Image Admin, Edit, Scan and Thumbnail controls. These controls come with Windows NT, Windows 95B and Windows 98. The help files are included and work with VB. If you don't see them, you may need to go into the control panel and run the Add/Remove applet. Look for Imaging.

I am running VB6 on the first version of Win 95 so the ocxs are not on my computer, but I do have access to a computer with Win 95 B, so I copied them over, but when I tried to use them I was given the error message: ___ is not registerable as an ActiveX Component.

I hate having to reject your answer, but since I can't get it to work, and I have gotten no further help, I want to reopen the question to others who might have the answer.

jjung,

You can't just copy over windows files. They need to go through a registration process. If you have the first version of windows, then you can download from:

Wow! That took a while. They moved the download to somewhere totally different.

These controls are free and work really well. Download the file and follow the instructions. If you have any problems, you can email me a lmorris@packagenet.com and I'll be more than happy to help.
