Each ActiveXcontrol supplied with Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition Tools (ODE) hasa corresponding .dep file.
This article lists the supporting files that appear in the .dep files forthe ActiveX controls included in the ODE.
The following file(s) are required for the ActiveX controls included withMicrosoft Office 97 Developer Edition Tools (ODE).
NOTE: All .dll and .ocx files should be installed in the C:\Windows\Systemfolder so that they can be shared with other applications. The SetupWizard 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 SetupProgram," or ask the Microsoft Access 97 Office Assistant.
