Frequently Asked Questions
I'm using Visual Studio 2005 (or later) for development. Is there a way to distribute ActiveX components without registering them with RegSvr32?
In order to use ActiveX components, they usually need to be registered on the machine using RegSvr32. However, if you are using Visual Studio 2005 or later for development, this can be avoided. In order to achieve this, following is required:
1) Expand "References" section in your Solution Explorer
2) Select reference in set "Copy Local" property to True
2) Set "Isolated" property on the same tab to True
When distributing your project, you can now simply copy your Output folder (usually "\bin\debug" or "\bin\release") and execute it.
