    Do I need Visual Studio on the Client machine to run DCOM?


    I'm getting run-time error 429 on the client machine when I try to run a project
    with an Active X Exe. Error 429 is: Active X component can't create object.
    I tried including the vbr and tlb files created when I compiled the Active
    X exe in the setup program on the client machine. I also tried to register
    the vbr and tlb files on the client machine as follows:

    CLIREG32 C:\WINNT\PROJECTADO.VBR -s NTWBUCK07733A -t C:\WINNT\PROJECTADO.TLB
    -d -q

    The client machine does not have Visual Studio or Visual Basic on it. Is
    there anything I need to do on the server machine (which hosts the Active
    X exe) to help the client machine recognize the Active X exe? Can DCOM run
    on a machine without VB on it? Thanks for any help.

    DCOM runs without VB installed - it is part of the Windows operating system (on 98
    and NT, and can be downloaded and installed on 95). But a VB exe cannot run without
    the VB run-time files installed. You must also register the A-X server. You can do
    this by running the server using the command line switch /regserver (i.e.):

    projectado.exe /regserver
