I don't have cmdialog.vbx either. Nor do I have the file threed.vbx which
is mentioned in raswin.mak, or any other *.vbx files. I have looked through
my Windows installation disks, without finding any *.vb_ files, and I have
checked on a colleague's machine, which was only delivered last week, and
there are no *.vbx files there either. Are you sure that these files are
not part of Visual Basic? I am cross-posting this to
comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.tools, in the hope that someone there can
provide more information on availablilty.
