hello everyone..
i finished programming a vb application, and i make a .exe file to run the application. IT works very good on the pc where vb6 is installed; but when i tried to run it on another PC where VB6 is not installed i've got the following error :
Run-time error '713':
Class not registered.
Looking for oject with CLSID:{59245250-7A2F-11D0-9482-00A0C91110ED}.

I really need to run the application on other PCs that dont have VB6. can you please give a solution.

Thank you.

    there is for sure a component, ocx or dll, missing.
    can you identify on which line of code this happens, respectively which ocx/dll files you have registered in your project which are NOT on the destination pc

    Error <<Error 713: Class not registered. You need the following file to be
    installed on your machine {name} - This means you are missing a file needed
    to run the system. Install the MDAC 2.8 file again and reboot . If this doesn't work do the following:
    Restore the missing file and register it (regsvr32).>>CLSID.
    59245250-7A2F-11D0-9482-00A0C91110ED and that is the microsoft
    binding collection in MSBIND.DLL.

    Find the MSBIND.dll and place it in the following folder on your pc.

    To fix this error...
    - First download msbind.dll and copy it into the \Windows\System32 directory.

    - Then, open the run dialog box using "Start | Run..."and enter the following.
    Regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\msbind.dll to register the DLL

    The easiest thing to create an install package for yoru applicatio nand add MSBIND.dll to it.  

    That way you don't have to worry about the computer not having this dll when installing.
