ActiveX CAB does not work on a machine where the ocx was not previously intsalled
Posted on 2003-02-21
Here is some background. I created a fairly indepth OCX, which takes advantage of mulitple controls and classes.
In my development environment the control works well, on a web page and in a vb form.
However, when the created cab is put onto a webserver, the control fails to activate when the page is accessed.
Using visual studio installer, if I create an MSI and install the ocx and it's components onto another machine and then access this same page. The control works fine.
This leads me to believe that the cab was perhaps missing some required files, but it in fact has everything +more then the installer had.
Does anyone know how I can determine whats missing in my cab, or why my ocx will not run on a foreign computer when accessed via a webpage?
