Release/Debug configuration builds of ActiveX Control(C++)

I am developing an activex control(C++) to interface to a VB UI shell.  If the activex control is compiled under a Release configuration - all appears OK - activex runs fine.

If the activex control is compiled under the Debug configuration - the control won't register correctly - get "not registerable as an ActiveX component" - hence I cannot debug the activex control - since the control requires an exe to run(in this case my VB UI shell which calls one of the activex controls functions).

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

If registration of ActiveX control fails in Debug mode, you can debug it using regsvr32 as executable for debugging.

Or try to manually unregister the release version first.  And you may need to reboot -- maybe something the ActiveX does causes it to get stuck in memory and so can't be replaced or something like that.
