Installing VB5 on Win98...OCX License not found?!?

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.
Thanks

I've used regsvr32.exe and found little success with it.
I was assumming that when vb5 installed its ocx's it saw these existing files and didn't bother to register them or something. So i decided to use regsvr32 in this way:

regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system\mswinsck.ocx
I did this to other ocx files as well and when i went into vb5 and added the controls it quickly popped up "license not found" again. What is regocx32.exe and where do i get it? Is there any information i can give you from a special vb file or system file that can help you decipher my problem?

Okay.

Get the regsvr32.exe and regocx32.exe from this place.

http://www.hili.com/~shay/regsvr32.exe
http://www.hili.com/~shay/regocx32.exe

the way to work is simple:

1. print this page.
2. place the regsvr32.exe and regocx32.exe in your windows or windos/system directory.
3. go to DOS.
4. type REGSVR32.EXE mswinsck.ocx and press enter.
 try the ocx with your VB and see if it works.

5. If 4 was not helping then go to 6

6. type REGOCX32.EXE mswinsck.ocx and press enter.
 try the ocx with your VB and see if it works.

if nothing helps let me know here and we'll continue.
