I have imported the activex but it is not appearing in the tools pallette at all, much less in the group I speficied.  

I need to have it placed on my form so I can play a wmp10 movie with it.  Noone should tell me that I can use a different component. I know this works, I've done it with d7 I just dont know how to get it working with 2005

Do - Import ActiveX

Then select the activex to import

click the install button

then compile & ok


NOw it should be on your ActiveX tab of the component pallette

Don't know why you are having trouble - sorry.... Importing an ActiveX control is pretty much the same for all versions of Delphi

Have you ever used Delphi 2005?  It's interface is entirely different for importina activex controls.  It is a sort of wizard that does not end up with the compile option as it would in a previous version.  It is certainly not the same as my d7 or d6

I don't have it currently installed - but I have had it installed in the past - I dont care for it - still buggy!


And as I can tell from the New Groups, the IDE Importer has trouble as well.

Seems some have had to use the comman line importer

command line import.

1) Run the following command:
tlibimp.exe -Hpa"Windows Media Player" -Hps"Windows Media Player"  C:\WINDOWS\system32\MSDXM.OCX
2) Create a Win32 package and Add the import library
4) In the Package project, right-click and "Install"


The meaning of the -Hpa and -Hps switches are
to explicitly name the palette page for controls
and servers.

There is pretty much a lot of info now on the Google Newsgroups about this stuiff

On point 4, there needs to be a "compile" notice, but otherwise thanks for getting that figured out for me.
