using SScontrols (e.g. 3D command button) in VB5

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.
