What is this usercontrol? what external user controls do you use in your project?
you will eventually need to deploy that (those) controls first...

what OS is your laptop running?
what service pack is your vb6?

only thing I could imaging is that on my laptop are newer/updated controls then on the workstations.
is there some way/program/utillity that would display the used controls (version/date) in a program,
so I could compare with all ocx and/or dll files wich where mayby newer or updated?

nothing ready, so you have better to look at the .ocx/.dll's installed by that party on your and the other computers, and check their version and dates.
the file properties should contain that information

got it,  I started allready with recompiling the program 'naked'  then test on other station, add a component , recompile, test it again,  untill I find the user-control  wich will 'hang' it.   Will let you know if this works ,  is their a commercial program then existing wich can 'list'  versions in a compiled program, to solve this kind off work now and in the future??

Thanks, this I will use in future, for now based on your advise I found the newer charcreater.ocx caused the error
while I was going step by step adding controls, so problem solved.
Thanks again, have a nice weekend
