Hi,

Thanks to your answer on how to install vb6 on windows 7 64 bit I got it running.

Question: on xp before our vb6 app would run we had to register a handfull of ocx and dll files for the grids and other components used by the vb6 app. After trying the exe now, it runs perfectly with none of the usual registering done!! Here are some of the files we used to register:

regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\mshflxgd.ocx
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\abctl32.ocx
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\sysinfo.ocx
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\mscal.ocx
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\comdlg32.ocx
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\msstdfmt.dll
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\ichtx32.ocx
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\u2lbcode.dll
regsvr32 %WINDIR%\system32\msmapi32.ocx

Can you clear up this mystery?

Is Microsoft Office installed on the target machine as well? I think some of those controls are included with Office. Maybe ?
