I am having a form load problem in a VB6 project.  THe form in question has a grid on it which allows the user to scroll, review, and select a record from the database.  The error is 429 which says that I don't have a proper license for the Active X control in question.  The error occurs on the frmName.Show event.  I added
grid32.ocx and dbgrid.ocx to c:\winnt\system32 and ran regsvr32.exe c:\winnt\system32\dbgrid32.ocx and regsvr32.exe c:\winnt\system32\grid32.ocx. Thiis still didn't solve the problem.  What is the best way to approach this problem?

If you are getting this error running the executable on a different machine, you need to use a tool like the Package and Deployment Wizard to create a setup package for you.  The setup program will install and register all of your program's dependencies for you.

Hope it helps!

If you use the dbGrid inside a UserControl:

"Licensed controls that come with Visual Basic that cannot be used inside a UserControl include Crystal(crystl32.ocx)and DBGrid(dbgrid32.ocx)."

Hmmm...that is interesting. The thing is that on another machine the project loads and runs just fine.  I was reviewing the .dll and .ocx files that are required by the project.  We have a setup.exe that loads all fo the required .dll and .ocx files.  However, some of the .dll and .ocx files are older than the ones on my machine. Could the problem stem from these newer .ocx files? I wasn't sure that allowing the setup program to replace them was a good idea.

You may try to run regsvr32 with the unregister switch first.

regsvr32 /u dbgrid32.ocx

A messagebox will appear telling you it unregistered successfully.

Then run

regsvr32 dbgrid32.ocx

And confirm that it registers correctly.

Besides that, the only other thing I can suggest is to update your development machine so that you are developing using the most current components.

Good Luck!
