Start a new project, try add those Class file or modules that use in your active exe project. Then save the new project.

Open an 'New' ActiveX exe project, then copy or include your class modules into it. This will save it as ActiveX exe project which in turn when complied gives you ActiveX exe

Hope this info helps!

also check this at design time:

Go to Project properties Menu->General tab and check what is Project type. Set it to ActiveX exe

You have to have a Instancing MultiUse class or SingleUse or PublicNotCreatable

(choose in the properties of the class)

Can you tell us what type of project are you making? I mean..is it a normal application or are you creating your own class, for which you can create object and use it later in your appln(most of the suggestions given above were for those)

If you develop your application in VB environment, you do NEED vb runtimes. Most basically, at least you need MSVBVM60.dll (if it's develop under VB6) to run your application.
