i had simply wrote an activeX dll using vusual basic that it will pop up a msgbox whenever it was call.

And now the problem i meet is that i don't want an execute file to call the dll. I need to put it in the component services application that i had create. I had also register it using the regsvr32.

But how to make it pop up the msgbox once i start the windows? I tried but it never works. is that i need to write somethg in the coding or i miss some important part i need to do?

thanks for help...

You can't execute a dll on its own, it needs to be called by something.

thank you carl....so this means that i need an exe file or an asp file to call the dll.

so what is the purpose i need to put the dll file in the component service? after i put the dll in the component services, i still need to put an exe file in the startup to call the dll so it can run when i start the windows.is it the only solution to launch a dll file at startup?

An COM+ application in component services isn't an application in the usual terms.  Components Services basically manages all memory allocation and object activation/deactivation and also allows transactions, and a load of other stuff.

Unless you specifically require the features provided by component services then you probably don't need to use it.

to carl,thanks for your answer.
Let's put aside the component services. How about services? will the services run the execute file automatically after the windows start? can we put our own execute file into the services to make it start automatically?
