ActiveX controls work on dev machine, crash IE on all others!
Posted on 2004-09-14
I am trying to develop a webpage-based activeX control.
On my development machine (Windows XP Home SP1, VB 6 SP6), I can run the ActiveX control from the VB IDE, or from the web page through the web server installed on my development machine, and everything seems to work correctly.
When I access the page containing the ActiveX control from another machine (Windows 98 SE with IE6 and Windows 2000 Pro SP4 with IE 6), after having authorised the installation and execution of the ActiveX (security set to low, all ActiveX options set to allow), Internet Explorer crashes with a reference to MSVBVM60.DLL... but I have the same version of this file on my machine (220.127.116.11) and on at least one of my Win2K test machines, but it still crashes...
One control tested referenced Microsoft Internet Transfer controls, and another test does not reference anything apart from the default controls when you start a new ActiveX control project.
