Converting stand-alone app to 10

Good day,

I followed the instructions at First Link to convert an existing .NET MapControl app from 9.3.1 to 10 SP3. It builds successfully but at runtime gives the error "you must have a license to use this ActiveX control".

I have an ArcInfo license but understand from Second Link and other sources that an Engine Developer Kit is now required to develop such apps. This is contradictory to the Development Licensing indicated in the first link above! A Third Link indicates that I should be able to convert as long as I don't need to make changes in the form designer, which is true.

Can I convert without having the Engine Developer Kit? If so, does anyone have insight into what else I may need to do?

Thanks in advance...
