    Unhappy VB6 Application(.exe) is missing controls!!! Help!

    Hi, guys. I have packaged my VB6 application which I designed from a Windows 7 computer. After I install the program on other computers and run it, I noticed all label controls, shape controls and image controls were missing (without error messages). The same happens to installations on computers running vista and win2000 and XP. It also happens to Win7 computers, other than the one that I have Visual Studio 6 on (the computer I developed from). I have checked all my OCX files and they are all there.

    Please, could someone help me with this? Thanks in advance.

    When you say you packaged the app I assume you mean that you use the PDW and built a setup.exe for it which you then installed on the target machine?

    When you say you checked the ocx files you are talking about the target machine, the setup or your local machine?

    Yes,I used PDW and Installed onto various Windows Platform machines. The target computers are the ones not displaying the controls. Datamiser for coming forth.

    Sorry, my last sentence was wrong. I meant to say, "Thanks, Datamiser, for coming forth".

    Oh. Sorry. Yes I included all the activex files needed by my application in the setup. That includes mscomctl.ocx, comdlg32.ocx, msado20.tlb, msbind.dll, mscal.ocx, msdatgrd.ocx, msderun.dll, mstdfmt.dll, tabctl32.ocx and vbstkit.dll.
