Vb5 - common dialog box

I have been using vb3 for years and recently purchased visual studio 97 (Enterprise ed). I have used vb5.0 from it for a few months and have just come to use the common dialog box for the first time and realised it's not on the tool box. I went to add it but it claims I don't have the appropriate licence. It says (SP2) by it in the components list which I presume is service pack 2. None of the CDs contain a service pack so I checked the MS web site. All I can find there are service packs for VB6.0 - where do I look? Is common dialog really not one of the standard controls?

Mcix, Thanks very much... it worked a treat... and only 35k  :o)
While I was browsing I discovered SP3 for VB5... is it worth downloading this 13Meg file??
What will I gain?
Is this another question?

You will definitely want to use SP3.  Especially if you are doing database operations.
