View Full Version : Installing An .ocx File

11-02-2003, 12:17 PM
I am creating an install for an application which references a file called mscomctl.ocx I t needs to be installed to the C:\Windows\System folder.

I am a new installshield 7 user and hope someone can provide me with instructions on how this can be done.

This file is available as a Merge Module
Merge Modules are prepackaged objects for you to add into your project so that you get the file deployed exactly the way that the manufacturer (Microsoft in this case) intended.

I don't remember Developer7 too well and InstallShield change the name of these things in the IDE quite often just to keep us on our toes (ISWI = IPWI = Author = Developer = DevStudio) grrr.

You will have a node in the main tree called Objects or Merge Modules or Redistributables.

the one that you want is (probably) called:
Microsoft Windows Common Controls (6.0)

Once you have selected it, you'll have a choice as to what feature it gets installed with

sorry for being so ranty
