Package deployment on Win NT

I'm using VB 6.0. My project is now completed, and I have just build an installation program with the Package deployment wizard. Can I compile application in Nt 4.0 and use the program in Win 95. In my opinion, I'm not convinced because the thousands dll and ocx the VB apps need to run are probably not the same on NT and 95. What are the facts about that? (I have installed my apps on Win95, and when trying to start it, I've got an ActiveX can't create object error!!!!)

If your application uses standard VB controls and ocxes and has no weird & wonderful api calls it should work perfectly well - VB was designed to allow you write programs that run on both platforms, regardless of which platform you wrote it on.
