I've got VB5 Ent. I have a project that I was working on at another machine. I was using the Microsoft Common Controls - 5.0 (comctl32.ocx). When I try to open the project on this machine it says it can't load comctl32.ocx. It will allow me to add the ocx and add treeviews and such on forms but all of my existing controls are now PictureBoxes. I have seen this before and I normally just replace all of the controls and rename them but this is starting to be a big hassle, especially with the size of this particular project. Does anyone know of a way to get around this without having to add all of the controls and rename them again?
Did that make sense?
I've looked in the vbp file and the path to comctl32.ocx is right. I can open it fine on the old machine but not on this one..
