Reference problem by running an application on an alien pc

P: n/a
Dear reader,

An application runs on several pc's.

But by one of them a massage pops up with the following information:

"Missing or broken reference to the file "PBGNX.ocx" version 1.0".

For me this is an unknown reference.

Is there someone who is familiar with this type of reference?

Tanks for any help.

Kind regards,

Simon van Beek

Sometimes during development experimentation additional references can get added
to your file. When you discover one the first step is to see if you can remove
the reference and still successfully compile the entire project. If you can
then you weren't actually using the reference and unchecking it IS the fix for
the problem.

If you find you have some code that won't compile after removing the reference
then I would suggest eliminating that code or switching it to late binding which
allows it work without the reference being added. This means that that
particular code still won't work on machines where that reference is broken, but
that particular code is the only part of the app that won't work. With a
missing hard reference LOTS of unrelated code and functions wil fail.
