Does an OCX made with VB require the VB run-times?

I am considering making an OCX (ActiveX control) with VB. But that control needs to run in other lanaguages than VB and I don't want to distribute the VB run-times with the control.

Does an OCX made with VB require the VB run-time files to be present for use?

The control just consists of the empty form that my DLL (written in C++) writes on and then a number of functions that does nothing but call my DLL.

Yes.  ActiveX OCX file will require the VB runtime files.

You are using VB, load any type of new project and try to remove the references to the Runtime Libraries before you do anthing else.

Thanks. I did a little research that confirms this. I believe it to be true.
