Did you compile for the same .NET Framework version?

And did you compile for x86? Visual Studio cannot handle 64Bit components.

I don't recommend using the old v4.7.
That version is over 2 years old.

Why don't you want to use v4.8.6?
It is a stable version.

Please don't hijack somebody else his thread.

If you have a problem start a new one.

Did you follow the steps I gave to Anatole?
Did you download the ocx-only installer or the MapWindow-Full installer?
