The following code run on computers which installed VC5.0, it works.
*************************************************
CCommCtrl   m_commctrl;
if (!m_commctrl.Create(NULL,0,CRect(0,0,0,0),this,ID_COMMCTRL))
      {
            AfxMessageBox("Failed to create OLE Communications Control");
            return -1;      // fail to create
      }
*****************************************
But on other computers which not installed VC, it failed. I did the register of activeX of Microsoft Comm Control 5.0 on all the computers. What is the solution? Thank you very much!

The control needs to be licensed. Use the other form of Create(), using a license string read with the Licreqst sample/utility. See Q151771 in the MS Knowledge Base, which should show you where to get Licreqst.

For instance:

WCHAR pwchLicenseKey[] =
{
0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      
0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      
0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      0x0001,      
0x0001, 0
}; // I have changed it to all 0x0001, rather than publish it on the web, but I think it is the same on all PCs.

CString strLicense(pwchLicenseKey);
BSTR bstrLicense = strLicense.AllocSysString();

bTest = m_MSCommWrapper.Create(_T("MSComm"),WS_CHILD, CRect(0,0,10,10), this, IDC_MSCOMM, NULL, FALSE, bstrLicense);

Note that Visual Basic includes run-time licenses automatically when you put an MSCommCtrl on a form.

I tried the licence, but it still cannot work unless I change the licence string to NULL.

What is the reason?

Search for Q151771 at http://search.microsoft.com/default. Search in "Support & the Knowledge Base".

Maybe you already have Licreqst. If so, make sure that you add a terminating null if you use it in the above technique.
