You installed something that overwrote
one of the .dll files.  Follow the instructions at the link above.

Thanks for the very quick solution of this problem.
Another installation had loaded Comcat.dll from 1998
as VB5 used one from 1996. Isn't it awfull, that this
can shoot off the whole VB functionality!

That's not the half of it.  Be careful not to install any VB6 programs on your development machine, as it will overwrite your VB5 ocx components and make future Setup packages reference the wrong version ocx.

Glad the article resolved the problem!

Sorry, there remains another problem, since this
trouble with Comcat.dll the national date within
VB5 by variable 'date' gives like 05.04.00 instead
05.04.2000 as before, the variable 'date$' gives the correct US date like 04-05-2000 . Do you have an
idea about this ?

Check the Short Date format in
Control Panel->Regional Settings->Date

It should be MM/dd/yyyy

Or format the Date to display as you like:

Debug.Print Format(Date, "MM/dd/yyyy")

One month later still remains a problem from that Comcat.dll (or else) overwrite:
Vb5 is active when I load WordPad to read a file. After that I want to read
a Vb5 file but pressing the button "Open File"  gives no reaction. Seems that both progs shoot off the "File open Control"  as this error appears
also vice versa when opening a file with Vb5 first. Can only bypass this
now by uncomfortably reloading Vb5 or Wordpad again.
