You are probably missing a required DLL on the 98 machine. Or a required DLL is not uptodate. Have a look at the dependent DLLs of your control and then check the versions of these DLLs on both machines.

You can see the dependents of a DLL, EXE, or OCX using the depends tool in of Visual Studio (it's off the start menu.)

If I am right you will need to copy these DLLs from your 95 machine to the 98 machine.

 Watch the Recording: Learning MySQL 5.7

MySQL 5.7 has a lot of new features. If you've dabbled with an older version of MySQL, it is definitely worth learning.

Debug it to see what happens with your DllRegisterServer.

Mr. Mnewton's answer is quite right. But I have another question that how to prevent the run-time-visible ocx from sizing or drawing at design-time?

Override the OnDraw() method in your ctrl class.
