unable to access proper version of ocx file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have a question which maybe lame for some but its proving a serious issue for me

    i have an application say name abcd one stored at C:\Program Files (x86) whose version is 5.7

    and same application with version 5.9 is installed at different location say  C:\temp

    i have to access the ocx file of the version 5.9 from my vb6 application while developing the vb6 code i always give the ocx component address of 5.9 version but while execution on the system my vb6 always accesses the 5.7 version ocx location

    do i have to make any change in settings so my .9 version of ocx gets accessed everytime the application is run.

    i am novice to vb6 and .Net/COM so any help will  be appreciated

    Thanks in advance
