Rich edit headache...

I have developed an application that uses the RichTextBox to do syntax highlight. I am developing on Window$ 200 $erver Editition with VB of course. When i run the project from vb, everything is OK. The same when I make an exe in my computer. When I try to make an installation using windows installer (from InterDev), a strange thing happens. My RichEditBox is not the same as the one I see when I run the project from VB or .exe ! Not even in my computer!!!! For instance while in vb run or exe, my RTB supports background highligting, the installed copy of the program does not! I have searched the net and I suppose it has something to do with RichTextBox versions (riched32.dll and riched20.dll) but that is as far as I can get... Any suggestions?

It does not seem to work ... I installed the fix but it said there is a correct version already on my computer but the problem still remains

What version did you install. I used to have the same problem but the correct version to install is 4.0.993.4 that can be obtained from any Win98 installation.

I think you may also need to copy the richtextbox OCX to the computer you would like to install to.  The OCX file also is different from version to version.  But if your forcing people to downgrade there version of the OCX, they may not like it.
