Default Activating FlexGrid


I've downloaded "msflxgrd.ocx" and put it in the folder with the rest of the VB5 files. (I now see it's also in "c:\windows\system32".) What more do I need to do to make it available in the Toolbox?
I've right-clicked in the Toolbox, clicked "Components", and got the list of controls; I marked "Microsoft FlexGrid Control 5.0" and clicked "OK"; I get a message "Permission Denied".
I searched for threads about FlexGrid, but found only problems with existing grids; mine doesn't exist yet.

You can't just steal an OCX and expect it to work. Most of these Microsoft OCXs are licensed controls.

If you have a legit Edition of VB5 that included this control then installing VB5 properly should have installed it with its design-time license. If not then it will not be available to you.

However VB5 was officially completely unsupported beyond Windows XP. This is different from VB6's "it just works" support level.
