ActiveX Document Migration Wizard in VB6.0

HELP!!

I just upgraded to Visual Basic 6.0, and I need to create an ActiveX Document.  I have done this successfully in Visual Basic 5.0 by using the ActiveX Document Migration Wizard, however I cannot figure out how to load the ActiveX Document Migration Wizard in VB6.  The VB help file says to:

1. Open the project you wish to convert.
2. On the Add-Ins menu, click Add-In Manager.
3. Highlight "VB ActiveX Document Migration Wizard", click the desired behaviors in Load Behavior, and then click OK.
This is the step where I run into trouble:  When I open the Add-In Manager, there are no Add-Ins to choose from (including the ActiveX Document Migration Wizard).  I cannot find anything telling me how to make the wizard appear in this list.  Please help.  Thanks!

looks like u have problem with VB Installation, VB documentation
regarding loading that ADD-IN is right, uninstall and try
to Install it again(Custom) and confirm all the options u are installing.

I uninstalled Visual Basic and reinstalled it using a custom installation.  I selected all the checkboxes (making sure none of them were left gray), and I even double-checked "Wizards and Templates" to make sure it was checked.  Still, after reinstalling, I have no Add-Ins available in the Add-In Manager.  Maybe I need to load the add-in, or something along those lines?  Thanks again.

add these entry into C:\WINNT\VBAddin.INI
under  this section

[Add-Ins32]
ActiveXDocumentWizard.Wizard=0

this should bring up the Add-In.

this is how my VBAddin.ini looks

[Add-Ins32]
DataToolsAddIn.Connect=3
AppWizard.Wizard=0
WizMan.Connect=3
ClassBuilder.Wizard=0
AddInToolbar.Connect=0
ControlWiz.Wizard=3
DataFormWizard.Wizard=0
ActiveXDocumentWizard.Wizard=0
PropertyPageWizard.Wizard=0
APIDeclarationLoader.Connect=3
MTxAddIn2.RegRefresh=0
ADBCLASSBUILDERWIZARD.WIZARD = 0
ResEdit.Connect=3
InsertInitials.Connect=0
DTCFrameWork.AddIn=0
RVBAddInMenus.Connector=0
RVBAddIn.Connector=0
vbscc=3
Project1.ApiClassManager=0

if this does not work can u post the entries in your VbAddin.ini file

It turns out that this was not my problem, though it appears it would have worked if it had been. It turns out that mine is a security problem with NT - Add-ins are only available to the person who installed VB (as an Administrator), so when a normal non-administrator user is logged on, they will not be able to see the Add-ins.  You must register the addins with each user using regedit.exe.  Thanks so much for your help.
