How Do I Register An Old VB6 ActiveX Control in VB6?

Hello Experts:
I am trying to get an old VB6 application to run again. I've moved on top a newer PC so I am starting over again.

When I try to add a classic control (CSDLG32.OCX) to the project, I get a message saying that the file is "not registerable as an ActiveX control". Then, when I try to register it with REGSVR32 it says that "LoadLibrary has failed - the specified module could not be found."

Is there anyone out there that is up on ancient history? Is there a work around for this problem?

Thanks.

You have to put the other libraries in the same path of the control. There may be a .dll that the control is related to before you register it...
