Right now, I'm using Visual Studio 6.0 MFC....

I find it very troublesome to close the application & delete the *.ocx.... And re-start the application just to re-link the ocx.... Any better way of doing it???

I am not sure I understand your Q

but I have a similar sounding problem.

I am writing OCX in VC, and testing in VB App.  Can't recompile OCX when VB Test App is open.

Therefore I have VB running too, and a dummy project in VB.  Before compiling OCX in VC, I flip to VB, press Alt-F-2 to load a dummy project, Flip to VC, compile OCX, then flip to VB and press Alt-F-2 to reload the VB test app.

Actually, we never have to here.  If you are finding that you have to, you might have the resource file open in edit mode or an application currently is running that is using the ocx.  It's our bread and butter here and whenever it doesn't link, it's one of the two.
