    Hello there,

    I was originally using Win7 32bit and spread 2.5 with visual studio 2015. The spread 2.5 installation file can run successfully on Win7 32bit and therefore I can view and edit the source code of my program in which some of the applications were scripted with Spread 2.5.

    The problem occurs when I try open the project on Win10 64bit with VS2015, visual studio pops out warning stating that``` “SS32X25.OCX License file for custom control not found. You do not have an appropriate license to use this custom control in the design environment. Call FarPoint at:x-xxx-xxx-xxxx”

    I have tried moving the ss32x25.ocx and ss32d25.dll from Win7 32bit to Win10 64bit and register, the ss32x25.ocx can be registered successfully but the MSVCRT40.dll cannot be found in both system32 and syswow64 folder even after successful registration (Not sure if this is the cause of my problem).
    Is there 32bit installer for Spread 2.5 available or where can I shift my license file to Win10?
    Please kindly advice me how can i view and edit my source code with applications scripted with Spread 2.5 on Windows10 64bit. Thank you very much! [img][/img]

    The error message clearly states that you are trying to use the custom control created using Spread 2.5 in the design environment. It requires the control to be installed on the machine where it is used and licensed. This is the correct behavior.

    Thanks, Deepak Sharma

    Thank you for your prompt respond. As Spread 2.5 cannot be installed on Windows 10 64bit, is there a way to transfer the license files from my Win7 to Win10?
