I wrote a group: project1 - the ActiveX control and projuct2 - the exe for testing the ActiveX. It was running fine. So, I make the .ocx file in the same folder as the group.

1. When I opened the group this morning, I got an error message: "Unable to set the version compatible component: c:\...\....cox". what I did wrong?

2. I tried my best: (a) deleted the .ocx file and the relation files, (b) deleted the registries related to the .ocx file, and (c) made some change to the projects so that I can make the clean projects......But all no use, the error message still appears every time I run the group!!!!

This error is given when it cannot find the actual file that you're referencing for the compatibility.  Go to Project/Properties/Component and re-select the file at the bottom for the version compatibility.  Once the proper file is set (and it exists at the given location), version compatibility will be re-enabled.

Make sure you don't delete or move the file that is used for version compatiblility, or you'll get the same error!
