ActiveX document (VB5) - basic questions
Posted on 2004-04-20
I want to make a database client as an ActiveX document. (in VB5 pro) to be run in
Users should be able to fill in some textboxes which content shall be added to a
database. Also they shall be able to browse the content of the database.
I have following questions;
What should I choose, EXE or DLL.? (I am not sure of the advantages of either).
What about the webserver, do I need a CGI-directory, or can the Document be run from any directory.?
Then what about if user need some files, will it all be handled via the .cab-files that
will be created in the Setup Wizard?
Are you aware of any problem I might need to know of?
I might have more questions later.
Thank you !!!
