Compile project & components to make single exe file

Hopefully someone will be able to help me with the following.

I have created a project which contains a number of ActiveX controls etc. When I have finished my project I want to be able to compile the project and all these files into a single file so that the user cannot access them by any means, is this possible?

Thanx in advance

Yes, in your project use Add usercontrol and add the myControl.ctl file to the project. Your user control now is compiled into the executable

You need a static linker to do this. see http://www.bit-arts.com/fusion.html

The short answer I believe is "NO". Isn't this the point of ActiveX controls that you can share them amongst other programs?

(But I am intrigued as to why you should want to do this - If he can't access them "by any means", how do you intend to make the program run?)

You do not need another linker. I have done this many times (VB6)

corvanderlinden comment is good if and only if you have the source code of all your components. Otherwise, my comment is the only way to go.

I reduced the points to 40 and refunded the rest. You can accept now emoreau's comment as an answer and post a separate 31p question for corvanderlinden with a title like "Points for corvanderlinden" and a body :"For your help with <URL>"

Thanks for your help on this, I have split the points as follows: -


40 points to emoreau, as you have pointed me in the direction of a product that will work even with my older control that I no longer have the code for. Thanks.

31 points to corvanderlinden, as his advice proves invaluable for my newer controls. These can be collected by going to http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=visualbasic&qid=20314641. Thanks.
