Hello, i am trying to make my x10 remote control work on my pc.

Problem is i have this file "x10net.dll" and its just to import it as a type libarary, and it install fine.

But when i try to use "X10Control" from the Activex page i get error "Cannot assign a nil to a TX10Control"

So if i look in the interface for this file, it says:

// Errors:
//   Hint: Member 'Interface' of 'IX10Control' changed to 'Interface_'
//   Hint: Member 'Label' of 'IXCommand' changed to 'Label_'
//   Hint: Member 'Label' of 'IXDevice' changed to 'Label_'

So its because it uses some of delphis indentifying names i guess, but what can i do about this?

2 files for testing can be downloaded here (tlb file and dll):

Hope someone can help me, cause if i import the file in vb there is no problem at all...

Regards

Project / Import Type Library / Add
point to the NvRemote.tlb file and choose INSTALL

the installed classes are:
TNvRemoteManager
TNvRemoteRemoteProps
TNvRemoteApplicationProps
TNvRemoteGeneralProps

make sure x10net.dll is in the search path, but better copy it to %WINDOWS%\system32 folder. Then :
"regsvr32 x10net.dll" to register the DLL

and then try again.

OK, I installed them. On ActiveX table I have the 2 components. And I can change the AutoConnect property, etc. It seems it is working, so man, I don't know how I can help you...
