vb4/16 bit app with comdlg.ocx on blank form w/o code results in "object server not correctly registered" error.  Works fine on all OSs prior to winnt5.0b2.  I have run regclean.exe v4.1a, no help.

Download Filemon or NTFilemon from www.sysinternals.com
Start Filemon and now run the application that gives the error.
Filemon will show a trace. In this trace it will also show you which
file failed to open. That's the one you are missing.

Filemon can be redirected in a dos box using filemon > output.txt

Copy the missing files and register them if needed with regsvr32.exe in case of DLL/OCX files

The www.sysinternals.com is a good site with some very useful tools but unfortunately none of them solved my problems.  There were no missing files, registry monitoring revealed nothing different on a system that works(nt4.0) and one that does not(nt5.0b2).
