Hello,

I have this scrpt sample:

var objFpc = WScript.CreateObject ("FPC.Root");
var objFpcRemote = new ActiveXObject ("FPC.Root", "ISAServer2");
var objUrls = objFpc.Arrays.GetContainingArray ().VendorParametersSets.Item ("{D75A14B8-7EB9-419A-983E-09570B65CCC7}");
var objUrlsRemote = objFpcRemote.Arrays.GetContainingArray ().VendorParametersSets.Item
    ("{D75A14B8-7EB9-419A-983E-09570B65CCC7}");
objUrlsRemote.Value ("urlblock") = objUrls.Value ("urlblock");
objUrlsRemote.Value ("urlallow") = objUrls.Value ("urlallow");
objUrlsRemote.Save ();

can this be done using C++?

how?

More than likely.

One way is to use the associated OCX or DLL or EXE file that has the FPC stuff in it.

If you use ClassWizard and
   Add Class -> From A Type Library,
the browse to the ActiveX (ocx,dll,exe); once included, it will expose its objects and methods.
Here is a link to an example of this technique with Excel.
You'll get the point from this and then you can modify it to fit your situation.

Also look at these other articles:

Thanks Triskelion,

but the problem here is that the function/s are on a remote computer, and the dll/s are not necessarily registered or even existing on the server running this 'script' - is that not important?

Cheers.

Well, the functionality I mentioned is determined at compile time.  The DLLs don't have to be registered, just available.

For your case, I'm not sure.
