Active X DLL

Hi, I have a question about Active X DLLs.

I have 2 Projects that are VB Active X DLL Projects. I will call them Proj1 and Proj2 for simplication. When I go to File->Make Project on the menu bar in VB for Proj1 it, it says "make Proj1.dll".

However,when I do the same thing for Proj2, it wants to make a Package Folder and does not say "make Proj2.dll".

I expected it to say "Make Proj2.dll", just like the Proj1 Active X DLL Project.  They are both ActiveX DLL projects and they both have the same number of files in each folder, as they should.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Does it actually say "Package Folder" in the menu?
Have you tried ALT+F then K keyboard shortcut?

I actually found out that one of the DLLs had been compiled prior to me compiling it.  I am thinking the VB Project file understood this and that is why it just gave me the option of compiling the DLL, which when I later checked the folder it too was creating extra files, but just didnt try to put it in a subdirectory called Package.

I think I maybe misunderstanding your question.  I thought you meant that the Make xxx.dll menu item under the  file menu disppeared?  Regardless of whether DLL was compiled or not this menu should be available all the time

Yeah, it is there.  But when I compiled proj1, it would make the DLL.  When I compiled proj2, it would make the DLL, but would want to put it in a Package Subdirectory.

As soon as the save as dialog box comes it would say "package\proj2.dll".

Why don't you just remove the package\ part? or browse to exactly where you want the dll to go
