Installing VB5 on Win98...OCX License not found?!?
Posted on 1998-12-29
When i attempt to install VB5 onto my windows 98 environment it installs fine however when i go to vb and create a new exe and add a special control from the components area (ie. mswinsck.ocx) it pops up:
"License information for this component not found. You do not have an appropriate license to use this functionality in the design environment."
When i check the c:\windows\system directory before installing i do notice that these ocx files (ie. mswinsck.ocx) does exist and appears to be a newer version than what vb5 is to install. This leads me to believe that it does not write over my supposed "newer" versions. If this is the case would this be a hint at actually figuring out why my system wont operate well with vb5?
Please provide a solution PLEASE!!! I haven't installed the Service Pack 3 for vb5 yet BTW or the "comcat.dll" replacement file.
