Hi, experts,

I created a VB ActvieX DLL. It is used in PowerPoint by referencing to it.

Anyone can tell me how to create a dynamic referncing to the DLL from the PowerPoint VBA so as the application can be used in various platform such as Windows and WinNT? This dll is correctly registered in windows\system and winnt\system32. When I used the PowerPoint application in WinNT, it always indicated referencing error because it has already refered to Windos\system through Reference Dialog Box of VBA.

thanks a lot,
beginner

Well, you can do this in one of two ways. In Powerpoint's VBA Editor go to the menu Tools..References and select your ACtiveX DLL's classname from the list of available components. Otherwise, use code such as :

Dim Z As Object

Set Z = CreateObject("MyProject.ClassName")

where MyProject is the project name of the DLL and ClassName is the name of your class.
