Default Make exe files

I have recently upgraded from Visual BAsic 6 Working model to the full Visual Studio Enterprise edition. However when trying to make exe files I get an error stating that I do not have the correct license information. Can anyone help overcome this problem?

Thanks

Did you uninstall the working model first? If not, uninstall everything and reinstall the Enterprise edition. It also might help to do a registry cleanup in between (a free registry cleanup tool can be obtained at http://download.com.com/3000-2094-881470.html?tag=list).

Yehuda thanks for that. I've unistalled the working model first and ran a registry cleanup. I've just uninstalled everything again and reinstalled it and get the following message while trying to make an exe file:

License information for this component cannot be found. You do not have an appropriate license to use this functionality within the design environment

The version of Visual Studio has installed correctly on a colleagues PC and works fine. Any otehr suggestions.

Have you tried just opening a form (no other activeX compoonents referenced) and compiling it. Your error is usually thrown when compiling a project referencing ActiveX controls marked for licencing that aren't licensed properly.

Just tried it and can make an executable for a blank form with no activeX components. IS there anyway of finding out which ActiveX components aren't licensed properly?

Thanks for you help on this.

What Components are you referencing? Usually it is an ActiveX Control.

I have been through the controls tab within the components option and made sure that all the .ocx files are registered. I tried to do the same with the dll's within the DEsigner tab but kept getting error messages. Could this be the route of the proble?

Possibly. It depends on the error message (remember not all DLLs are COM DLLs which can be registered). Have you tried again after registering all OCRs?
