I have created an active x control with vb5.  This control is used as a printer and is built with crystal 6.  Sometimes I receive an automation error when using the control.  Any advice on how to track and fix this problem.  Any information on automation errors?

Missing or wrong version of DLLs on target machine.  Make sure you install all the files required by you control and register them on the target machine(s).  Use the Setup Wizard for this.
