    ActiveX components and common windows controls in Visual Studios.NET and VB.NET


    I am hoping someone can help me with determining which versions of the following
    ActiveX controls ship with Visual Stuidos.NET and VB.NET:

    MSFLXGRD.OCX
    MSMASK32.OCX
    COMCTL32.OCX
    COMDLG32.OCX
    TABCTL32.OCX

    The reason for my request is that my supervisior wants to begin tracking
    version changes so we can manage or avoid any DLL and OCX **** when upgrading
    or recoding our applications in VB. Currenlty we use VB5 and plan on migrating
    and then recompiling all of our applications into VB6. We do NOT have VB6SP5!
    I am recommending to him that we install the service pack. Also if anyone
    knows where I could get copies of the latest versions of these ocx's without
    purchasing or installing some other application or software for testing purposes
    that would be great. Originally we were hoping Microsoft would simply have
    a webpage outlining the changes from one version to the next and tell us
    whether the latest versions support backward compatibility....but after almost
    a week of combing MSDN and microsoft.com I have reached the conclusion they
    have either not released this information or have not bothered to compile
    it and publish it to the web.

    Thanks in advance for any hints or tips!

    Mike,
    Just out of curiosity, it you are migrasting to VB 6, whay are you asking
    about VS.NET and VB.NET??? As far as I am aware, VS.NET has its own version
    of the controls in queastion, which ARE NOT ActiveX controls in .NET (.NET
    does NOT use ActiveX, though existing ActiveX controls and DLLS can be used
    in .NET apps, via COM- Interoperability)
