Default making an .exe work

i got the program to run on my computer that has vb installed but when i try to run it on another machine using the same .exe it is asking for some .ocx files. both computers are running XP professional.
can anyone help as to what i have to do short of copying all the .ocx files to the computer manually?
is there a way to incorporate these files into the .exe so they load when the file is open?
i am using an ADO control with VB6.

I assume you've run the Package and Deployment Wizard to make an install for the program? Although not perfect, it usually picks up any dependencies and puts them into the install package. The OCXs are then installed on the target computer, if they aren't already, when the program is installed.

Try using a installation setup program like install shield or wise installer for distribution purposes.

It should solve the missing ocx things.

or do what I sometimes do, mark down all the .ocx that is required and manually copy it into the system32 folder.

hope this helps.
