I have a vb6 activex control(.ocx) that I need to use in a .NET app, but I am unable to add the control. (err - Converting the assembly to a .NET assembly failed. Error loading type library/dll. (I have already tried aximp, with the same results). No interop dll is available., Anyone have an idea how I might be able to pull this off? (I have no source code for the .ocx)

thanks in advance.

If all else fails, you could wrap it up within another usercontrol in VB6, by re-exposing all the properties methods through the new control.

However, I would explore other avenues before resorting to this.
