Remote Registration and Activation

Here are some standard problems, where I suppose, lots of you may answer it immediatly:

How may I import the mapping of the ClassID to the ProgID provided in the VBR-File in the regsitry (if I don't want to do it manually)?

Do I need a special tool to register the TLB-File?

What is recommended on the server side to allow RemoteAccess? (The RemoteAccessServcie is not started and fails, if I want to start it with the RemoteAccessAdmin.)

Thanks db

Look for CLIREG32.EXE in your VB directory


CLIREG32.EXE "Remote.VBR" /s "myNTserver"  /t "Remote.TLB"  /d /l

That's fine, but now I get 'Permission denied'

Is that probably a problem of the RemoteAccessService?
(I started the Server-Module manually and this did not change, the error.)

And I would like to set the ServerName at runtime (I got VB6, where CreateObject allows to specify a server name) - so may I easily omitt the /s info and use the CreateObject-Function with the ServerName?

I tried a little bit around: I always get Permission denied.

And if I omitt the hardcoded ServerName, I get a ClassUnknown error.

Please give me some more help.

I figured it out, thanks.

Did you find out what was causing this 'Permission Denied' error, I'm getting it..

I'm using DCOM.
