Install Vb.net with OCX on other computer

Hello,

I have an vb.net App with an OCX in it. In my Release folder I have:

- AxInterop.DVDLib.dll
- DVDCleaner.exe
- Interop.DVDLib.dll
- DVDlib.ocx

What I need to copy on another computer so that the app run? I tried to install all files, result DVDCleaner.exe crash on start. Next I try to Install only exe and ocx, result is a crash on start. Do I need to register anything else as the ocx?
Do I need to make registry entries? I use InstallShield Developer 8.0

The .net Framework is the same on traget computer as the one I develop with, so this is not the problem. An TestApp without OCX runs. The OCX is wirtten in MFC 7.0 (C++). All needed files are on the computer (MFC).

Iam happy if someone can help me.

All OCX's (and COM dll servers) need to be registered on the target machine using RegSvr32.exe:

    regsvr32.exe <OCX filename>

This registers the type library in the registry, and create entries for the COM objects themselves. InstallShield should have a property for the dll that indicates whether or not it is self-registering COM server (perhaps something called "selfRegister", or something like that). Bottom line is, you have to run the aforementioned command line to use the OCX. If InstallShield is not performing this task for you, then you will need to check the documentation to see how to enable it.
