I have finally completed a educational visual basic application thats ready to be released but when end users try to install it; they encounter countless errors pertaining to ocx and dll files not registering or violations. Is there a soundproof way that I can ensure my app gets installed on every machine????? HELP????

How about use the setup wizard that shipped with VB? It can get the dll and ocx your application needed and install, register them in the user's machine.

If you have VB5.0, go to the Microsoft site and download the VS97_SP3 patch kit. It fixed the installation problems that I was having with applications.
