mscomm problem

I am building a DHTML application in which an mscomm ActiveX control is placed. The app works fine from the VB environment and when the htm page is viewed (with IE4) on the computer the app was built on. However, when I package and deploy to another computer and view the page in a browser, I get a runtime error '13' (type mismatch). I made sure that I packaged the .ocx, .dsr, and .dsx files with the package, so it is not missing any of those. Could someone please give me an idea about where I might be going wrong here? This is my first DHTML app, so I could easily have missed something. Thanks!
