Redistributing Common Controls
Visual C++ .NET supports developing applications using the latest Windows common controls (COMCTL32.dll) available with the latest Internet Explorer. If you use any of the newer controls from the latest COMCTL32.dll, you will need the latest version of Internet Explorer on the target computer to ensure that your application runs properly.
