hi,

re ;  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_21091221.html

EDDYKT's answer might be what i need :
-----
You can create another activeX exe to do the registry changes.

Call this activeX from your service

ALso make sure change this activeX exe to run as interactive user from the identity tab by
using dcomcnfg.exe
----

im feeling so dumb,  ive never used active exe's    

pls help me in de right direction,  ive opened a new activex exe project,  a class mod is shown,  ive added the reg edit code,  and in its sub main i call the reg change  ?? is that correct ?

then, how do i call the activex from the service   (sorry for these stupid questions,  i really never had to use active x)

thx a bunch guys

cheers

you have to create method in your class module (e.g RegChange). Then from your service you should call ActiveX exe in the following way:

Dim MyObject as ProjectName.ClassName

Set MyObject = New ProjectName.ClassName

Call MyObject.RegChange

Set MyObject = Nothing

im still struggeling :( :(     why have i not gone to college and study more..  fool i am  :D

gents please.. im stuck..

i created a  active x exe.    a cls file is shown, i added the reg change code, and added a  private function regchange..     i updated dconcnfg,  it shows
project1.class1   its identity is now interactive user..

then i wanted to test if it works.. created a new app just to test.. instead of calling it from the service..

:  

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim myobject As projectname.classname
Set myobject = New Project1.class1
Call Project1.regchange
Set myobject = Nothing
End Sub

(is this correct ?? )

when launched it says,  user defined type not defined..      this usually refers to a reference not set...       only  i dont know which reference...

thnx a bunch
regards, sander

First of all regchange function has to be public not private in order to call it outside ActiveX EXE. You should compile your activeX EXE (File menu -? Make ProjectName.exe). In your main app go to Project->References and add reference to your ActivexEXE. You should see it in the list of available references. If it is not there, there is Browse button, so you can browse to exe file you created.
