I developed a vb6 application using the MScomm control which works great, through the vb IDE and the compiled version. I plan on using this program on a few other computers that do not have VB installed so I used the package and deployment wizard to create the necessary CAB files, etc.
I installed the program on another computer (also Win XP) and the application works with the exception of the serial communications. I don't get any errors it just does not work.
The MScomm32.ocx is in the correct directory and I even registered it manually based on some things I came across searching on the internet.
The question is, why won't the MScomm control work on machines that don't have VB installed even when the ocx is there and registered?
