Default Adding forms at runtime

I am working as a developer in a firm mainly dealing in ERP solutions.

My team is facing problem of adding forms at runtime. I think i need to elaborate on this.

     We have different modules in our ERP like Hr,Payroll,Finance(Accounts),Fixed Assets,Shipping,Marketing(Sales),Inventory etc....
Some modules are interrelated. Our our global variables were set by checking modules at startup which in maintained by flags in a database. If we need to give selected modules to client, we enable the flag for that module. Now problem arrises when we give such modules that one of them is dependent on that module. So it will give us error at compile time. If we want to bypass the forms that are available in vbp but not required in that module....is this possible?

Currently we creted a module that checks for particular flag and if it iss tru then only it will initialize that forms e.g
#const a=0

#if a then
    dim f as frmEnquiry
#end if

Is their any good solution
Is it possible to maintain a class that initializes modules using user dfined datatypes?

Please Help

what do you mean with "modules"? Are they standard VB .bas file or classes?

If I understand correctly, you have several "modules" (whatever they are) that they are shared between applications, and some modules have a reference to modules (or forms?) that are not used in some of the applications and therefore missing in the vb project. Am I correct or am I off base?
