I have installed vb5 enterprise edition, but I can't find any SS controls like which in vb4.
So I copied some .ocx files from vb4 in order to add those custom controls.  I can successfully added the control in the tool box of vb5, but when i use it, it said "no lisence information for xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
So..........how can I use those controls?

Thanks!!

You need to register the controls. Try using REGSVR32 and spec the full path of the .OCX.

Or you can double click the .reg file found on the VB5 cd in the Tools folder.

Hi chuyan,
You can include all this SS tools simply by clicking

Projects---->Components---->Microsoft Tabbed Dialog Control5.0 and Sheridan 3d controls and click on Apply.

All the ss controls will be added to the toolbox.

If this is not the answer you are expecting, then sorry.
