ActiveX dll questions

Is there any reason I would not want to check the "Unattended Execution" option when creating an ActiveX dll?

Are there any pros or cons to this I should be aware of?

Thanks,
David

if you run this DLL on a server (by DCOM or MTS), and you have anything that can be displayed on screen (msgbox and other), you should check this option to send messages to the event viewer instead of the server screen (where nobody will click on OK!).

When using an active x dll the main reason we checked this option was as following (from MSDN)


By recompiling a component with the Unattended Execution option, you remove any possibility that it will show message boxes that require operator intervention. Instead, such messages can be logged to the Windows NT event log.
