How does an ActiveX component get auto-registered
Posted on 1999-07-26
Does an ActiveX component get auto-registered (when first launched by a browser) by the regsvr32 utility, and if so, where does this utility come from? Should it be part of IE4 or the OS?
I have a comercial app that I can modify to use ActiveX controls. These controls will be auto-registered when the form is first loaded by a program called regsvr32. Many of my client PCs do not have this utility. So I wonder if this is the same utility that auto-registers ActiveX components seen by a browser and where does regsvr32 come from if many clients don't have it.
