Hi...hope someone can help
I have written an ActiveX Control to allow better access to our workplace
internal phone directory. This is stored on an Access .mdb file and I am
using DAO code to get at it. This control is registered with the local
machine and works fine when inserted into a web page. When the page is put
on the intranet server it still works fine on the original machine but the
control is not visible on any other client machines. What I am assuming is
that the control itself needs to be saved on the server and registered with
the server OS. I cannot do this easily as our network people would rather
you shot their dog than touch their web servers. I just need to be able to
tell them the problem and give them the choice. I did read something in a
book about having to use (and this may be wrong) "server extensions" in
order to use ActiveX controls and that if you didn't the client would have
to download a copy of the control along with the page...and if this is true,
does the downloaded control need to be registered with the client machine?
If anyboduy has any idea what I am talking about I'd like to know myself.
