Ok so I had a project in VB6 and migrated it to VB.NET which was a huge headache but I finally got it to compile and run.  So then I had to upgrade my computer, I try to load the project and run it on the new computer and I keep getting this type of error:

Type 'AxMSComctlLib.AxToolbar' is not defined.
Type 'AxMSComctlLib.AxStatusBar' is not defined.

you get the idea...  I have installed VB6 and Visual Studio 6, linked to every library I can think of and I still get these errors.  Can anyone tell me what I need to reference to make this go away?

It seems to be a class of some sort, maybe this site will help. You might need to downoad the class so you can use it, unless you already ahve it.
