Use the Package and Deployment Wizard that comes with VB to make a setup program for your program. It will install all the files that your program needs. You could also use Inno Setup. Link here. (http://www.innosetup.com)

An ocx file is an ActiveX control. Any ActiveX control you include within your program must be present on the computer running your program. Instead of just sending people the exe file (which I suspect you are doing), create a setup file with the Package and Deployment Wizard, which ships with VB. When you create your setup file, include the required ocx and dll files. This will install the files on the target machine so that they can be used in your program.
