Change GUID in VStudio C++ OCX
Posted on 2004-10-05
A seeming simple thing, but I can't find a reference on how to do this.
I wrote and ActiveX control in Visual Studio 6. I want to break off from the current interface and create a newly referenced control...new name, new GUID.
The ODL file has lines as follows:
[ uuid(11518DD5-DD1F-11D4-9B28-000000000000), version(1.1),
// Primary dispatch interface for CRichTextBoxCtrl
// Event dispatch interface for CRichTextBoxCtrl
helpstring("Event interface for RichTextBox Control") ]
// Class information for CRichTextBoxCtrl
Can I just generate a new set of GUIDs and replace these? Are the sequential aspects of these existing GUIDS important?
