View Full Version : Dynamic file linking and COM registration
01-17-2006, 05:50 AM
I'm using the Dynamic file linking fetuire to generate custom setupkits. However when I check the box on the general tab "Extract COM info at build", the project cannot be built. It comes up with the error "A key file is required for dynamic COM extraction".
Key files however cannot be defined in dynamic file linking.
Is there any workaround?

Question, if you are doing a COM extraction then you are dealing with a DLL or OCX file, correct? You should only have one dll file or ocx file per component if you are using COM extraction (best practices). Therefore you should not use dynamic linking.
Use the component wizard to pull in a large group of dll or ocx files and it will handle the COM extraction process and setting key files.

I resolved this by splitting it up into 2 parts, *.dll and another with all except *.dll. On the *.dll one I selected the "Self-register all files" checkbox.
