I am building a new active form from an existing active Form project.  I want to produce a completely new activeX control from it, using the existing project as a starting point.  I have re-saved the project with a new name, but there seems to be a problem, since the GUIDs in the Type library are still the same.  

Is there a simple way to change all of the GUIDs, and is this enought to ensure that there are not any conflicts with the existing control?

If you change all the GUID's then you should not have any real problems. But if you forget one, you might get a few conflicts...

It is possible to edit the type library files in their textual forms and replace the GUIDS by deleting them, then pressing CTRL+SHIFT+G (Or was it CTRL+ALT+G?) to generate a new GUID. If you generate new GUID's then they are statistically not in conflict with any other GUID.

I ended up creating a completely new project.  Changing the GUIDs in the tlb did not seem to work.
