Tablet PC PenInputPanel

I'm writing a prototype for the Tablet PC and can't figure out how to get the PenInputPanel to display.

I've tried code like the following...

     Dim thePenInputPanel As New PenInputPanel(PainDiagram.ActiveForm)
     thePenInputPanel.Visible = True

I've even tried to attach it to a control, but nothing.

One note, even though I have the latest TabletPC SDK installed, I get an error on my development box, when this code is ran, stating that the Com object i either not valid or not registered. I do not get this error when it is ran on a Tablet PC. Maybe this is because of my dev box not being a tablet pc.

Please Help
