Isn't apk files for Android? VB6 does not run on that platform!

Right, usually, but because .ocx are usually embeddible into an activeX dll, for a web page circa 1998-2001, and includible within Visual J++ 6 projects, I was thinking that there might be a roundabout means by software, [similar to converting html to js, or html to apk] which might save myself the hassle of converting 16 million lines of code from vb to j++

Plus, since activeX is a Microsoft technology, don't expect it to be supported anywhere else but on Windows products.

Fabrice, I wouldn't say that Microsoft products are not running anywhere else then Windows. They have more and more products running on Linux, Mac, IOS, Android, Rasberry, ... They even have a product (Xamarin) letting you building your own

Thanks all. I Will be busy transferring and translating 16 million lines of code, so if anybody asks: Is Dave operating a Hermitage? Tell they: We can suspect Dave will be quite busy for at least 3 to 5 months, including 6 to 9 weeks of coding an 'Extra-Dependency translator' [with a primary feature that enables any new & consequential .BAS & .DLL files to Eliminate any Dependency on Vbrun*.dll and others, to rely more upon something like: QuickBasic++ which upon the 'Import File...' selected from the menu, has ability to integrate, find, and replace any and all instances of function and subroutine calls with an intramodular segment and substitute based routine with bGOSUB or bGOTO extended Capabilities, via: Kernel.bas, Math.bas, Geom.Bas, GuiCaps.bas, HWCaps.bas, Controls.bas, etc, etc serve only a purpose of Copy and Paste, including extensive prototypings associable, in addition to: many other early 1990s internal and intermediary compilations involved with: PANES.BAS (which was already technically equal to a chore of: writing C# with a capability to decompile, translate, import and call any subroutine or function involved with ActiveX Dlls)]--because the phrase: 'Microsoft Solution Providers' no longer includes Microsoft themself provide any Solutions.
Yup. I figured there was gonna be a vast project directly involving 'the repository' on day 1 when Microgoons placed the repository in VB5 controls creation edition...
Thanks for your attempts.
