Getting a 429 install error - sometimes.

Hi,

I have a VB6 app that on some beta tester's pc fails with a Cannot create Active X control. The install has all the 3rd party controls I use, plus MDAC, Plus WSH.

A test suite of very simple apps that each have one ocx + a ado test app all work.

Seems to happen more on corporate/large org. pc's

I'm looking for two things:

1.VB6 code to add that will catch which ActiveX is not installing. I added code to form-Initialize and form-load but it did not catch the error.
2. any software that I can feed a list of .ocx's to and it can check whether they - and their dependencies - are installed.
