Have you tried to use


Require License Key


From Project menu->property->Require License Key


From MSDN

Require License Key

Enables licensing for ActiveX Control projects (projects that compile to .ocx files), not to .exe or .dll files. A Visual Basic license file (*.vbl) will be created when you build the project. The *.vbl must be registered on the user’s machine for the components to be used in the design environment. The Package and Deployment Wizard will build a setup program that properly registers the information in the *.vbl file on the end user's machine when that setup program is run.

I don't think requiring a liscense key is the same as digitally signing the control.

Has anyone ever done this?
