Getting Strange Icons on numeric keypad downloaded - Calc.frm when deploying to another PC

I used the Calc.frm that was refered to in another question.  When I compile and load the exe file on another PC, the buttons on the keypad have different icons instead of the numbers.  This only happens on a PC that does not have VB software.  The keypad looks fine when I run the program.  Any clues as to why this is happening?  This is the code I used:

simply copy-paste this into notepad, save it as Calc.frm and add it to your application.

You may want to change the graphics around to spruce it up.

Hope this works.

Let me know if not (and why)

btw - this is based on the code that Richie referenced.
