You can create OCX-Controls (as far as i know) with every version of
Delphi since 2.0, so:
1.) Try to get an old version at ebay for few bucks or (Delphi 3
Standard ~ $15, Delphi 3 C/S ~ $200).
2.) Try to get Borland Delphi 6.0 Personal Edition. It's free for
non-commercial use (but hard to download, cause its often down). I don't
know, if there's something missing in Personal Edition of Delphi other
than the sources of VCL (i heard some rumours about the help files, but
I am not sure).

Good luck,
