Some of the controls will need to be registered before they will work.. threed.ocx is one of these. The vbctrls.reg found in the (Pre VB5) archive, will register the pre-VB5 controls automatically. Some of the others will have to be done manually.

 

1. Copy all of the files in this directory to your \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.


2. Register the controls by either Browsing to them in Visual Basic itself, or
manually register them using RegSvr32.Exe. RegSvr32.EXE can be found in the
\Tools\RegistrationUtilities directory. Or download the regutils archive 
HERE 

There is a readme.txt file included in the archive, explaining how to use each of the registering utilities.

The command line is: regsvr32.exe grid32.ocx

3. Register the design time licenses for the controls. To do this, merge the
vbctrls.reg file found in this directory into your registry. You can merge this
file into your registry using RegEdit (regedit vbctrls.reg) or double click vbctrls.reg
