My VB6 installations have been taking the MsWinSck.ocx from my WinXP machine and placing it on Win7 32-bit systems, and my programs run just fine. The file can be found in C:\Windows\System32, which is where it should be placed on the Win7 system also.

I did that but still get the error: Mswinsck.ocx is not correctly registered or missing.  I tried registering it but that gave the failed to load error.  What is wrong?

Trying to install from a directory I created, I get the following error:
The module "c:\dtl database\mswinsck.ocs" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x8002801c.

I should say:
Trying to REGISTER from a directory I created, I get the following error:
The module "c:\dtl database\mswinsck.ocs" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x8002801c.

Am I missing so other files?

you may also need wsock32.dll.

If you use dependency walker (depends.exe) to check the mswinsck.ocx

I couldn't get it to register when it was in c:\windows.  Might be some security issue?  Anyway, got it to work in a folder that I created.  Thanks for your help.  

EDDYKT:  Thanks for the info about depends.exe.  Good to know.
