I wrote an active-x exe file using Visual Basic 6. On the developer function this exe file is correctly registerd so I can use the methods and properties of that class in the exe. But how can I use this active-x exe on a different computer? When I make an isntallation script it won't register the active-x exe

To register an ActiveX exe on a computer, just double-click on the EXE. It doesn't matter whether it was compiled as a standalone App or not.

Mirkwood -

My understanding is that the /RegServer is not required for prgrams compiled in VB - is that right?
