ActiveX control (.ocx) behavior at runtime... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am developing an application in Visual Basic under Visual Studio 2008 Professional. As part of this application I am using a third-party ActiveX control (.ocx file). After building the installer (.msi file) using the deployment tools in Visual Studio, I tested it on a clean system. Although the install appeared to run successfully, when I tried to run the application I received an error telling me "You must have a license to use this ActiveX control." This would be expected on the development machine, but should not happen on the client system, i.e., in the runtime environment.

    Where is the best place to ask this questions.
