How to Get 36 ActiveX Controls from Microsoft for free.

FYI…

Did you know? Many of the VB6 controls come from other companies.

Microsoft stripped them down and distributed them.

Like the MSflexgrid control actually came from http://www.videosoft.com VSflexgrid.

Hmm VSflexgrid... MSflexgrid... This download contains the latest version of the VSflexgrid Ver 8(completely backwards compatible with MSFlexgrid) and many more.
