Sheridan 3D Control (THREED32.OCX) asking for License in VB 6.0 (get solution here)

This is a third party control and is called (Sheridan 3D Control).

This control was mainly developed in VB 4 .

So if we try to use it in vB6.0 then it asks for the license and won’t work

Therefore installing it in VB 6.0 we have to apply some trick as follows:

a. On the Visual Basic 6.0 installation CD go to

b. Then there are two files namely
i. THREED32.OCX and

c. Copy these files to your system32 folder and overwrite the old files.

d. Then on your system32 folder double click just installed VBCTRLS.REG file to register it to your computer.

e. Now your Sheridan 3D Control should work.

Thank you so much for this useful tip. Recently I'm using vb6 in a pc with Win10 Pro and this issue does not allow me starting with the programming process.
