Good day,

The Best Answer

It's not sufficient to simply add the missing file, activex need registering.
Your SCX knows what file it uses in it's OLE2 column.
USE your.scx
Look inside.
And you better not only include that file in your setup, you also set it's properties so the setup registers it. And you better look out for a merge module installing an AcitveX and dependencies.
The properties of files you add to the installer project also have a COM settings tag, which includes Scan at Build, that scans for dependencies. Setting that for your EXE will make Installshield Express look out for any COM dependencies your EXE has and
will result in build warnings at least.
Bye, Olaf.
