When opening a page that contains a Grid Design-Time Control (DTC) or trying to place a Grid DTC onto a page in Source View, you may get the following error:
Alternatively, for multiple objects, the error will read the following:
An object has failed to load. The object will be displayed as text.

The Grid DTC is implemented as a Visual Basic control
that instantiates a Java COM component
As a result, dependencies of both Visual Basic (such as the Visual Basic Run-Time Msvbvm600.dll) and the Microsoft VM must be up to date. Other Design-Time Controls included with Visual InterDev 6.0 are written in C++ and do not have the same dependencies. Typcially they continue to function even when the Grid DTC does not.
