This is probably another manifestation of the problems I'm having.

Have I had some fun over the past couple of days with VB6 and PDW.. I am
developing a simple application using some 3rd party controls, and the
app compiles to about 40K. I decided to test it on a Win95 and Win98
machine. The Win95 machine had it's gdi32 and user32 dlls trashed.
Luckily I was able to manually copy them from another machine and
rebooted OK. On the Win98 machine, it trashed the kernel dll and once
again I had to copy it from a backup.  I would not dare deploy anything
at the moment with this setup. My NT is 4.0 workstation with SP5 and VB6
is at SP3.

I am now trying PCInstall from20/20 and this seems very stable, but now I
can't self-register any of my OCXs :-(  

Anyone else having problems like this ?
