Use regsvr32 filename and see if that works. VB6 is very old and it may not work. Here is a Microsoft support article to assist you.

Thank you both.

Actually, this is a legacy VB6 program that includes a third-party spell checker from the folks at  Vsspell. Uses vsspell.ocx

A version without the spell checker runs fine on Win7.

I'm sure Vsspell would have a latest version of their spell checker available for the later versions of windows, but it seems easier to just register the one I have in hand.
