Upgrading VBX to ActiveX (VB3 to VB 5)
Posted on 1998-09-24
I'm trying to upgrade an application from VB3 to VB5.
I have already registered all the OCX that replace the VBX used in the VB3 version, but when I try to load the project (VB3 makefile), the load goes fine but at the end I get a message saying 'Can't perform requested operation.'. I thought the problem was the components list so I tried another solution.
I've created a new project, selected the components I needed and then tried to add one form at a time. But then I found another problem, some controls aren't recognized and are replaced by PictureBox, this hapen's with 3DControls (SSPanel, SSFrame,..), MaskedEDit, etc.... I thought this controls would be automatically updated to their new version(OCX) that is already registered in the components window.
Does anybody know how can I solve this problem, which is the best way to upgrade one project from VB3 to VB5?
