I think we may test an ActiveX DLL (or EXE) by project group similar to testing an ActiveX Control.
However, I just can not access Class1 of the DLL from the added project2 by
Dim myClass As New Class1

What wrong I did?

(I didn't make the DLL before test)

Is it the only class1? Do you get the pop-up option to add class1? Is class1 PrivateNotCreatable? Can you declare it as Dim MyClass As new TheDll.Class1?

Hi,

Did you reference project1 in project2?
In proj2, Goto Project -> References
And put a check beside the project which contained Class1. ex: project1

Hi p_biggelaar,

>Is it the only class1?

Only one class in the DLL and that is Class1.

>Do you get the pop-up option to add class1?

First time when I run the project group, I got something (forgot what is that). Then I set Project2 as start up project and run the group again and didn't find any pop-up.

>Is class1 PrivateNotCreatable?

Don't know...I will check.

>Can you declare it as Dim MyClass As new TheDll.Class1?

No, that is the point at which an error occured.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
