I have a problem in runnning a exe file created in Visual Basics 6.0.
I have created a application in VB 6.0 on my machine with a exe file for that. it works perfectly at my PC.

But when i have tried the same at another newly formated NT machine, it asks for a few 'ocx' files. i don't know why it is so.
 Is it required to install VB on the machine where u r running the program. i don't think this the problem.

Can anybody suggest me the solution..

Thanks

Make a setup of you're app. It will then install required drivers on the machine without VB.

I think you had used OCXs in your application, so if you run the app on another machine, it will need the same OCXs you used. Copy the OCXs to the new machine and register them, it will be fine. Or use the VB6 setup program to build a install program, it will list all OCXs you used and add them automatically.

Choose Package and Deployment Wizard in VB 6.0 and build the set-up.The set-up will show a list of OCX files and DLLs to be included. Complete the Set-up and then ship the Cab files

just copy them OCX files over to the NT box, and then use REGSVR32 ocxname.ocx on a run dialog. this should fix them right up.
