Hi,  we are using SkinFramework in our VB6 app (yes! VB6!).  

The spec requires that I am able to disable skinning via a software registry flag (in case of crashes etc), i have implemented this by wrapping the OCX in an OCX of my own that uses CreateObject instead of a reference and control on a form.  This all works great on my machine.  

However the only way i can get it to work on a test client pc is to use Registrator.exe to register the OCX.  I really don't want to do this as we have our own silent installer and Registrator requires the user to click a button to continue.

Does anyone know the 'correct' way to silently distribute SkinFramework OCX onto a client PC?  I have tried REGSVR32 and it seemed to work but when the object is created it just gives ActiveX error 91.

CreateObject needs a registred class-id.
regsrv32 does this for you.
If you write an own control/exe without including the CJ's controls in a form, the licenses are not included and not distributed. You have to use the licenses-methods (VB6) or redistribute the licenses-files from CJ directory to your application directory.
Be aware that no other applications/developers can than work with the controls.
