Since a long time ago, we are creating 32 bits Objects in VB 4.0 32 bits and we can use it from VB 4.0 16 bits with any trouble, but today I've just build a 32 bits EXEActiveX in VB 5.0 and this is not visible from VB 4.0 16 bits. Do they work different 32 bitsVB5 objects than 32 bitsVB4 objects?

Any help is welcome ;).

Hi,

I don't know exactly what kind of 32 bit objects could be created in VB4. Are you talking about VBX? They were 16 bit objects!

Anyway, VB5 introduces the ActiveX objects, based on the COM object model and allowing applications to use them through Automation (former OLE-Automation)! As far as I know, you can't use them in VB4!
For some custom controls, VB5 provides the new ActiveX version replacing the older one.

Hope this helps,

PMT
