ThinApp and DLL/OCX registrations

I am trying to create a thinapp package for a legacy Windows XP application to run on Windows 7 in a test environment.  The app, Microsoft Dynamics SL 6.5, is package-ready and the package itself created with no problem.  When I moved the file collection to a flash drive and tried to load it on the Win 7 machine, thin app started and it fired an error that an OCX file could not be registered.

the base machine used to create the package is a Win XP SP3 VM running in Fusion 3 with no other apps installed.

Not sure how to get around this issue or if I missed something.

Might anyone here have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the assistance

May have to create a (XP) virtual machine to create the ThinApp package.
