When you distribute an ActiveX control with your run-time application, include the .ocx file for the ActiveX control and any .dll or other supporting files needed by the control.

To make this easier, the Setup Wizard supports the use of dependency (.dep) files. The .dep file for an ActiveX control contains information specifying the files that are required to use the control. Each ActiveX control supplied with Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition Tools (ODE) has a corresponding .dep file.

This article lists the supporting files that appear in the .dep files for the ActiveX controls included in the ODE.


The following file(s) are required for the ActiveX controls included with Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition Tools (ODE).
ActiveX            Required          Supporting       Dependent
Control            File Name         File Name(s)     File Name

InternetTransfer   Msinet.ocx        Comcat.dll       Comctl32.dep

RichTextBox        Richtx32.ocx      Comcat.dll       Richtx32.dep

UpDown             Comct232.ocx      Comcat.dll       Comct232.dep

Winsock            Mswinsck.ocx      Comcat.dll       Mswinsck.dep
NOTE: All .dll and .ocx files should be installed in the C:\Windows\System folder so that they can be shared with other applications. The Setup Wizard suggests this path automatically for ActiveX (.ocx) control files.


For more information about ActiveX controls, search the Help Index for "ActiveX controls," and then "Adding ActiveX Controls to Your Custom Setup Program," or ask the Microsoft Access 97 Office Assistant.
