If you want to know the version of the control you are running in your project.  Open your projects *.vbp with notepad

The reference will look like so...
Object={BDC217C8-ED16-11CD-956C-0000C04E4C0A}#1.1#0; tabctl32.ocx

Where the numbers before the control name are the version.  In this case "1.1#0"
