Thread: active X

  1. #1

    Default active X

    I installed a privately made windows program through 'wine' and I get an error "activeX component can't create object."
    Is there an equivalent that can do the job or a way to circumvent the problem?
    Can anyone help?

    Do you have the DLL for the said activeX object installed?

    No. I'm quite new to Linux and although I read in older threads about installing the appropriate dll files, the threads were always about widespread programs and links were given for downloading the said dll file. However, my program is not one you would find online as it is made by a private person where I live and so I don't know where or how to get the appropriate dll or how to to install it.

    Thanks so much for your help I really appreciate it!!

    In windows the dll must be registered to use the activeX interface. So I guess you must register them. In wine I don't know how that is done though.

    This may help but don't know if it works in wine. You may want to check on the wine board I'm sure others have seen this.

    Thank you, I registered the .dll and .ocx files only a .tlb file failed with this 'wine regsvr32 *.*'
    Yet, I still get an error message 'activex component can't create object' when I try to run the program.
    I'm beginning to be afraid that I'll have to resort to running windows
    Thank you 'gogalthorp' for your help, I am much obliged. If you have any more to offer I am ever so thankful!
