Getting error message as “You do not have a license to use this functionality” when trying to access an ActiveX control from another application after upgrading to Windows 10 1809 update RRS feed

  • Question

  • While accessing ActiveXControl in an application from another application, an error dialog with message as ‘Runtime error 429, You do not have appropriate license to use this functionality’.

    This problem is getting only after upgrading to Windows 10 1809 update.

    When followed the solutions given by microsoft for similar problem

    You receive an error message "You do not have a license to use this control" when you use Visual Basic 6.0 controls in Visual Studio 2005 or in Visual Studio .NET

    , the first solution is solving the problem. But the solution is to install visual Basic 6.0. 

    Is there any other solution which is lightweight?

  • I would recommend asking about this issue here as you have mentioned using an active x control from VB6 and this forum is geared towards VB.NET without using anything from VB classic.
