Hi,
I wrote a small program which uses the MSComm32.ocx to transfert data from serial port. On my computer, it works very weel, but when I want to execute it on a other computer, an error message tells me that a not supported operation was tempted. This error occurs each time that the program performs the UpdateData() function.  I used the class wizard to map a control variable to the ocx. My question is why it is working on my PC and not on other? I tried to compile my app whith the MFC in a static library but I got the same error.
Thanks

  Are you sure that the OCX is available and registered on the "other computer"?

The OCX wasn't registered on the other computer. I regitered it (with Visual C++ 4.0 CD) and my program worked. What files are needed to use the MSComm32.ocx and what my installation program does have to write in the registry for registering this OCX?

You register OCX:es with the program REGSVR32.EXE, that is supplied with the NT system itself.

I.e.
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32>regsvr32 mscomm32.ocx

To unregister, just use the /u switch. Theres no need to write in the registry yourself.

  "stefanr" is right...  You can make the calls to REGSVR32.EXE from your (un)install program.
