HI HuaMinChen,

From the sounds of things you are upgrading a VB6 program to VB 2008.  You will need to get the ocx file you showed in your screen shot from the old system or off the internet and place in the c:\windows\system32 or c:\windows\syswow64 and register the file in the registry with the following command from a command prompt  c:\regsvr32.eve c:\windows\system32\msdatgrd.ocx repeat for other folder.

If you can't find the file let me know I still use VB6.0 and can get it for you.  

You may also need to go to components and add it back to the project.

Good luck!

Many thanks. Can you please provide the ocx file to me? Do you know where the download of VS 2005 is?

it is not VS2005 that you need, it is VB6 (the error message specifies it). And I am sure, it won't be that ocx only. It is only the first one that had an error.

VB6 cannot be downloaded legally from anywhere for free.

I know it can be impossible to download VB 6. So I expect to get VS 2005 to further convert the existing VB 6 project. Thanks.

As i already told, VB6 cannot be downloaded legally from anywhere for free. You can access it if you have an MSDN access
