VB 6.0 Learning Edition - Lacking

Hello.

I've begun to learn Visual Basic using Visual Basic 6.0,
Learning Edition using the book, "Teach Yourself Visual Basic 6 in 21 Days" authored by Greg Perry. I've found
this book to be really good.

But, I've run into my first snag: In Day 17, I am to learn how to create my own ActiveX control using the 'Wizzard'. The problem is I don't have this 'Wizzard', nor do I have many others. I have 3 to select from.

I appears to me that I must shell out some more money (credit) for an upgrade to the VB 6.0 Professional Edition.

Must I do this or is there somewhere else for such resources? This book has peaked my interest and now I have reached a brick wall. I have my 'complimentary' MSDN CDs. Are those useful here or are they merely library files?

For the wizards you will have to buy the pro edition but you can still create ActiveX controls by hand. In fact this is probably a good way to start since a wizard hides much of what is really happening.

I can still create ActiveX controls by hand? It sounds like I still need more resources
than what I presently have and the means with which to get these resources.

With VB Learning edition you can create an ActiveX Control project and then build a user interface and then add properties and methods and events and then add a test project and then compile to an ocx.
