Hello Experts,

I have been running VB5 on a Win98 machine for a very long time.  Well, I finally got a new machine with XP Pro.  I installed vb5 on my new machine and copied over my programs.

I have a project that uses the commondialog control.  When I load the project, I get a message "Error during load.  Refer to ... .log.  The log file contains the message: "Cannot load control CommonDialog1; license not found".  

In my project menu, I have checked the reference for Microsoft Common Dialog Control 6.0.  I also have checked the corresponding component.  The file comdlg32.ocx is in C:\windows\system32\ .

This project worked fine on my old machine Any ideas what might be wrong here?

Thanks for any help.
