When I try to insert ActiveX Controls into my programs I get
and error box that says:

"License Information for this component not found.  You do
not have an appropriate license to use this functionality in
the design environment."

What does this mean?

Thanks For The Help...

The ActiveX control is not registered in your windows system. To make it work, you need to do the following:
1. Make sure that the file corresponding the control is in your windows system directory.  This file should be with extention OCX.  If it is not, copy it from your VB setup CD.
2. Register the control with Regsvr32 by typing
 regsvr32 [filename].  Here [filename] is the file you should register.  This is based on the assumption that both the file you register and regsvr32 are in the same folder.
3. Run Vbctrls.reg in the folder in your VB setup disk.  It is in the folder where the *.ocx files are.

This will register some ActiveX controls which used to be used in VB4, but not shipped with VB5 and VB6.  If the one you are trying to register is not one of these.  The 3rd step is different.  Any problems, please email me at :yfang@lawco.com

Good luck
