i am trying to run a vb2 game and keep getting an error message

Os Win7 home 32bit. I am to run a game called "missile.exe". It was made with visual basic 2. I keep running into the following error message window "can't load custom control dll: c:\games\dgames\missilec\spin.vbx" when I start the game. Is there anything that I can do to fix this?

You are missing something that you haven't added in your game, try checking it on Visual Basic 2.

Originaly when I tried to run the game. I 1st got a message saying "mci.vbx" is missing. I d/l that. Ran the game again and the game asked for "threed.vbx". I d/l that and ran the game again. The game said that "spin.vbx" was missing. I d/l that and ran the game again. Now up to the current error message "can't load custom control dll: c:\games\dgames\missilec\spin.vbx".
