Thread: ActiveX control on PWS

    ActiveX control on PWS



    I've included a third party activeX control on a page. I'm running personal
    web server. Everything works great on my machine. However, when I bring up
    the page on someone else's machine the activeX control doesn't show up.
    Could the problem be that I'm using personal web server?

    That's probably because the activex control is not installed on that
    computer.
    ActiveX controls suck!

    You are most likely right.. The activex control should be put in a
    downloadable setup using Package & Deployment Wizard i VS6.. This will help
    the user install it.

    OK... In one way they suck.. They don't work on anything but Windows
    platforms.. Nevertheless ActiveX controls are excellent serverside (no UI).
    DLL's are ALSO ActiveX components (Or COM objects). How would you access a
    database without ADO?? (OK you could use another DB provider but that is
    probably also an ActiveX control).. ActiveX controls are actually quite good
    when you think about it (they are FAST).... As long as you don't put it on
    the client that is..

    When I said the they suck, I meant client-side ActiveX control.
    Sure, ActiveX DLLs (which I myself develope in VB) are great, but like I
    said, the controls suck... =)
