Posted on 2006-04-06

I have transferred an entire Project from a machine running Windows 98 to a Newer Machine running Windows XP.

When I compile the application, for every Form on which I am using the RichTextBox Control, the following message is logged:

Cannot load control RichTextBox; No licence found.

Any idead what the problem could be ?.

    RichTextBox is a commercially produced component for .NET development:

    It would appear that you have a license for this product installed on your old development machine but neglected to re-install that license on your new machine.  I suggest you look through your records for the purchase information and retrieve the license and put it on the new machine.

         You can download or copy the richtextbox control which you have been previously used and you have to register teh component in you system
    by using
          regsrvr32 <ocx name.

    I do not remember ever purchasing a licence for the use of the RichTextBox control. It was provided with VB6 Professional and I was able to use it on my old development machine.

    I simply have no idea what to do.

    Thanks anyway.
