Hi friends, I was trying to use vb.net control in VB6, I followed the instructions and got it working. Heres wat i did:
1. Installed windows interop forms toolkit application
2. Created a control in VB.net using Visual_studio_team_system_2008_team_suite
3. Built the project
4. Opened new VB6 project and in Project--> Components, the vb.net control was there and i used it and it is working properly.

Now, I want to know that how can I make the vb.net control work in any other PC, its working in my PC bcoz while building it in vs08 it probably registered the control which shows the path of windows\system32\mscoree.dll, my customer wants a setup package just like one which can be created with MS VS06 Tools--> Package and Deployment wizard. So How can I create such package using VS08 and give the customer the setup so he can install it and in his new VB06 project components my VB.net control will appear just like an activex .ocx control? Thanks in advance, Vishal

Deployment is discussed in the toolkit help file, did you read that? It seems to indicate a Setup Project can be used to register the Interop UserControl.
