I am using a Windows 10 system for the conversion to VB.net. Most has gone swimmingly, but I get "Did not find a registered ActiveX control in ....\dataform.ocx" error in the new build. dataform.ocx was missing from the project, so I downloaded version 184.108.40.20669 (file size 529 kB, date modified 06/24/1998 1:00 AM) from Microsoft and placed it in C:\Windows\SysWow64. Then I attempted to register it using Regsvr32.exe. I get the error "Module dataform.ocx was loaded but the call to DLLRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005". The 0x80004005 error code means there is a permissions problem. However, I am logged in as an administrator AND ran the program as Administrator. I have tried un-registering it (same error). Any suggestions? Getting rid of dataform.ocx altogether is an option, but I'm not sure what that involves (what VB.net substitutions are needed for the wrapped-up VB6 ActiveX needs). Thanks, Dave
