Running app w/o installing DLLs/OCXs/XYZs? ChrisLewis?
Posted on 1998-07-01
I've heard that it's possible to run a VB application without installing the required DLLs, _if_ those DLLs are in the same directory as the application file. Well, I've put all the files that SetupWizard includes in an install for the application in the same directory. And, surprise, surprise, it doesn't work... (And yes, I have "extracted" the install files...)
When I run the app, I first get two error messages saying "Object server not correctly registered". Then, when the application window appears, I get the same error with an additional "Run-time error '336': " at the top. And then the application exits.
As indicated in the question title, the project uses OCXs.
Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get this to work, and if it is, how?
If you want to know what the point of not installing is, it's because the application reads data from a CD-ROM, and as long as you have to have the CD-ROM in the drive, it would be nice to be able to just skip the install... (And have an _optional_ App+Data install instead...)
