i'm using imgedit.ocx control in my app. since i need to work in another system now, i copied all the reqd controls and tried registering them using regsvr32. but for this particulr control, an error popped out saying

loadlibrary("imgedit.ocx") failed.

what should i do?
also is there any difference between kodak image edit control(imgedit.ocx) and wang image edit control(imgedit,ocx).
thanks

What is your new system?
I think that either
* the ocx does not need to be registered
* the ocx has dependency files (dlls) that need to be registered first

and regarding the dll's, i dont know whether the control has any of them. can u please find out whether the
wang image edit control has any dependency dlls or not.
also whats the diff bet wang imgedit and kodak imgedit control.

If the control has any dependancies, they will be listed in the ocx's dependancy file.  It should have the same name with a .dep extension.

Also, there may be a required setup routine for the control.  Simply distributing the ocx, does not give a design time license to the user, only runtime, which would cause the error in VB.

You can't distribute imgedit.ocx
