He's getting that error because his computer doesnt have the 'tabctl32.ocx' file. He can either download it or you can search for it on your computer, find it, and send it to him. Once he has it, he must copy it to his system32 folder in his windows directory.
Lastly, click on Start, click on run and type

regsvr32.exe C:\[His Windows Directory]\System32\tabctl32.ocx

Can that be done through a program?

It's called an installer or a setup creator.

You can use the Package & Deployment Wizard which comes with VB or you can have a look at INNO setup

i used P&DW and now (in a folder) i have....

htmlv1 (original name of app)
setup
setup.lst
htmlv1.cab

then i have a folder containginf (i think) all the .dll's that go into the setup file.

Now, i thought i called my setup file 'setupHTML' but there is no such file any where.

anyone know what file i should send to my friends to let them insatlll my app?

You must send the entire folder to him. Zip it up and send it to him.

However, condsidering VB setups are ridiculously large, you could still use my earlier method and just send him the file so he can copy it to his system32 directory. And no, there are no programs that automate this.

That's a very bad advice.

I am somewhat of a newb, however, I had this very problem when my XP Home app's were not running on XP Professional and I solved it without using any wizards or install sheild addins. I simply sent my app in a ziped folder containing the .ocx(s) required and had my app copy them to the system32 folder using the path "C:\Windows\System32" and it worked great. As I said I am a newb and there may be reasons why these more experienced programmers have not mentioned this. It is a little programmer intensive but works great on many platforms!

As Flyguy said, you really shouldn't use such methods for many reasons, for proper maintainance and version control the files should be installed in certain ways. While such methods may seem to work, they tend to cause more prolems later. If you want to look professional and do things the right way, follow Flyguy's advice and use a setup creator.

Question

I don't think this is worthy of a new thread so I will ask here. What sort of problems may occur, all vanity issues aside. I have been doing it this way for about 4 months and I haven't had a problem. Any info would be very appreciated! Merry Christmas/Haunika/Quanza or whatever!

Here are a few off of the top of my head, I'm sure there are many more.
1). Can't be properly un-installed.
2). All sorts of odd things can happen with files that should be marked as "Shared", this can cause the count in the registry to be off, cause another programs uninstallation tool to remove files you need because it appears there are no other programs using them, etc..
3). Much higher chance of breaking things by having the wrong versions of the various needed files.
4). Huge, and I mean huge, tech support nightmere, and not just for you, doing stuff like that can break programs by other people.

Thats just a start, there are many more, and those will affect not just your program, but can have an impact of other programs as well. It's just a bad idea and really shouldn't be done.

Default If your not a pro

If you want a cheap way of installing software you can use a program winRAR, free to download from www.win-rar.com/. This program is similar to winzip, which allows you to create a self-extracting exe files. What it does do that winzip doesn't, is allow you to execute a file after extraction. This option can be used to run a .bat file that register the dll's/ocx's.

This way is by no means fool proof

scogs, in reality thats as much work in not more than using a real setup program, and unlike WinRAR, Inno Setup is free, but the biggest problem is that you still totally remove the proper version control.

Thank You for sharing that with me Adam. I didn't know any of that information. In the future I will not recomend it to anyone or use that method myself!
