Missing SSTab1 control

I got a program from another guy that I am trying to compile.  
I am using VB5.
I keep getting three errors that say:
"Line 63:  Cannot load control SSTab1; license not found."
"Line 15:  Cannot load control LV_APfiles; license not found."
"Line 26:  Cannot load control CmnDlg; license not found."
Can anybody tell me how to solve this?

find threed32.ocx anywhere. (it is located also in your vb cd, do a find). Then also find vbctrls.reg copy then into system folder and double click on vbctrls.reg.

If you cannot fint vbctrls.reg then you can copy and paste code below into a file in notepad and save as it as vbctrls.reg and do what i told above.

--------------Dont copy this line
REGEDIT
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Licenses = Licensing: Copying the keys may be a violation of established copyrights.


// The 16 bit and 32-bit OCX Professional license follows:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Licenses\DB4C0D00-400B-101B-A3C9-08002B2F49FB = mgkgtgnnmnmninigthkgogggvmkhinjggnvm
                                   
// The 32 bit OCX Professional license follows:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Licenses\7BC20EDC-4A42-101B-A3C9-08002B2F49FB = gifblihbhiiihbciocfbkifbqcfcdiebbiqh

// spin32 DB key
// anibtn DB key
// gauge  7B key
// grid   DB key
// keysta DB key
// msoutl DB key
// threed DB key

You have probably have this file in your vb cd. This is the exact way so ask more if you cannot do that.

I also got these type of errors when i istalled the files. One way to over ocme it, is to open the form where the sstab control is there remove it () remember that you must know what exactly GUI is and replace that with a new control from the tool box. Name the new control with the same name as the old one so that there is no need of any code changes. This tyeps of errors will occur as the version of the fiels on your machine will be different from that of the other machine from where you have got it.

hmmm, sorry. something missing. What i told above works for Sheridan Threed Controls, i mean just with SSTab1.


For

"Line 15:  Cannot load control LV_APfiles; license not found."
"Line 26:  Cannot load control CmnDlg; license not found."

You should check which files (ocx) stand for LV_APfiles and CmmDlg. After finding ocx name you can manually register them by typing regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system\filename.ocx and then clicking ok.

This second is not exact solution for last two controls.

a "B" without any comment. Your problem could be solved or not. If you accepted my comment why B, if my comment isnot enough why accepted? You could wait for more comments.

I am confused.

The vbctls.reg file worked, but I didn't need to copy it to my system directory.  Sorry, didn't think it was that big a deal.
