Using Windows 2000 Pro on Dell Latitude w/ 256MB at 500MHz.
I downloaded the most recent build of Mozilla .7.

I registered the mozctl.dll and added the path in the Mozilla BinDirectoryPath
in the registry.

I started a new VB project in Visual Studio 6 with SP3. I added the
MozillaControl 1.0 Type Library. The Mozilla Component appeared in the tool bar
as the green lizard icon. I clicked on the Mozilla icon and the mouse pointer
became a cross-hair. I clicked on the form and dragged down and right. When I
released the mouse I received this error:

The instruction at "0x600f22e4" referenced a memory at "0x00050003". The memory
could not be "read".

I went into the VS C++ debugger. It displayed the following message box:

"Unhandled exception in VB6.exe (CHROME.DLL)0x0000005: Access violation.

I am very anxious to begin using this control to provide web, XML, etc.
functionality in our applications. Hopefully, this control will become stable soon.

Never mind. Found on the project page to make sure the PATH environment variable 
includes the path to the directory in which the Mozilla resides. Have query in 
to Adam as to which .DLLs are required by mozctl.dll.
