VBX won't load in VB 3.0
Posted on 2000-02-19
I have a computer on win 3.1 with vb 3.0. That computer could die any day. I have a new computer with VB 3.0 installed. My program (that runs the entire operations unfortunately) includes a .vbx files that was not standard with VB 3.0.
When I load my code on the new computer, it tells me that there were problems loading the file, and to see appname.log.
I have regsvr32.exe - but that seems to only work with .ocx files. I have heard of regsvr.exe for vbx files, but cannot find it anywhere.
I need to know if vb 3.0 vbx files need to be registered, or if there is a licensing procedure that will still be in the way if I register it. Also, if this regsvr.exe is the answer, where can I get it?
I don't know where the vbx originally came from or I would repurchase it. There should be some way to transfer the vbx over.
If nothing else will work, could I copy the hard drive of the old computer and in some way have my computer give me the option of booting up regularly, or booting up on a seperate drive that includes the copy of the old computer?
