Re: problem installing mscomm.ocx

if your target OS is older then windows XP - then besides the Mscomm file you also have to install VB6 runtime files

An Access97 application contains a Forms with Mscomm ActiveX.

When I run the application on a machine having Access97 and Vb6.0 : no

When I create an installation program (including Access Exacutable relaese)
and I install the application on a machine which do not have access and/or
vb6.0, I receve the message 'No object for the control' when the application
open the Form containing mscomm.ocx.

Mscomm.ocx has been loaded in windows\system32 and written in the
BaseRegister of the client machine.

Is there a special procedure to install this AX ???

Sorry for my english
