How do people manage and keep a track of all the different ocx controls and dll's used?
Under Project, references and componants in vb5 there are so many ones to tick and untick how do you know which ones you need and what they mean?

When you choose Project->Components, all checked controls are included in your project at that time.  If you attempt to Uncheck a control, and it is being used, VB will let you know (via a messagebox), and NOT let you remove the control while it is still in use.  If you would like to see all of the OCX's & DLL's that VB "thinks" you are using, you can run the Application Setup Wizard, and have it create a Dependency file, showing which controls it is going to distribute with your application.  This is a widely used way of checking to see what components your application uses.  It's not perfect by any means, but it's generally pretty close.
