Visual Basic - Load OCX (DLL) files manually to avoid Registry actions (Administrative Rights)
Posted on 2003-11-27
First, let me give you an idea of what we're trying to do
PROBLEM: We're working with a client to provide a product that will users to bypass Administrative Rights and use the software.
I'm presuming that their security structure is similar to Windows XP's "Limited Access" mode for assigning users... ie:
- Copy files/Create Folders
- Run files (ie: EXE)
- Copy files to "Program Files" or to System Folders (ie: Windows, System32)
- Write to user's registry
Our software requires some OCX files (ie: RichTX32.ocx, MSCAL.ocx, etc)
QUESTION: Is it possible to load the OCX files within VB, so the files would not need to be copied to the System32 folder, not registered.
