Administrator Elevation Prompt VISTA And ActiveX EXE

Oct 27, 2009

I have an ActiveX EXE that is compiled with VB6, unfortunately because it exposes an ActiveX interface it refuses to run unless i embedd a manifest file into it requesting elevation priviliges of administrator.This in turn has the side effect of VISTA prompting the user to logon as administrator each time they run the application.The admin on site has already refused to disable UAC.Is there any way for either our application or the administrator to auto-elevate the program on the domain?

Runtime '429' ActiveX Cannon Create Object Error, Calling .NET From MSO On Vista

Oct 9, 2009

Our VB.NET application has a .NET dll, with a registered TLB file; so that VBA in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel can call into the application.  The application functions correctly except when it is called into via MSO on Vista. This functions correctly on Windows XP machines but on Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines it is returning a 429 error.  A reference to the TLB file can be assigned in the VBA References dialog box, on Vista.It doesn't appear to be a problem in our application as a simple Test libary does the same thing.  Microsoft Applications have been 'Run As' Adminstrator, and Vista UAC is turned off, but I am thinking there is perhaps a security issue?

Form.Webbrowser Control Different Between Vista 32bit And Vista 64bit?

Oct 11, 2009

I am been working on an a small app that has a Forms.Webbrowser control that navigates to a Adobe Flash program. I have developed the app on Vista 32bit platform and have had no problems. I have sent the app to a couple of people to test out and one is using Vista 64bit and is running into a problem. I know the webbrowser control just uses the underlying base framework of IE. The problem on the 64 bit machine is when the site is navigated to it says that it needs to have Flash installed. When the user goes to Adobe's site it says they need to use a 32bit browser.

As stated on Adobe site here:[URL] the Flash player need to be in a 32 bit browser. What options do I have to be able fix this problem? Is there another control that I can use that would be the same in a 32bit platform and 64bit platform? Besides navigating to the Flash program, the browser also goes to standard web pages.

Control Key Constant For Registering Hotkeys

Using the code from this thread, I have been able to successfully register hotkeys for myself. I am having trouble though, I am trying to register a hotkey with the Control Constant; it doesn't seem to be working. I need to register Control + 1 (MOD_CTRL, Keys.D1). I know how to do this, yet I can't seem to get the MOD_CTRL constant to work. I've found that the constant for Control is &H11 but as I said previously, this does not seem to fire for either the left control or right control keys.

VS 2005 Piracy Protection Mechanism And Windows Vista Or Windows 7

Apr 19, 2010

i have created some shareware applications. I implemented the following mechanism for piracy protection. Before Windows Vista and Windows 7 i did write a dll file to the System32 folder with an encrypted license key. Also in the Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE i inserted a registry key.

The problem is that with Windows Vista and Windows 7 due to the User Account Control (UAC) this is denied.

I want to ask : what other mechanism can be implemented ? Where should i store the encrypted key file and the registry key.

I want that the application can be installed for all users of a computer only once.
If i stored the key in the user's application data directory then another user could easily just install it under another user account. Also i do not want to put the key file in the application directory because that would be too obvious.

note that i create the registry key with my application and not with the installer.

Windows Service And OCX / ActiveX Component?

Apr 5, 2005

I am trying to build a windows service application that uses an OCX component (non graphical). Creating the service is easy. In order for the OCX component to be used it must be loaded on a hidden form using the STA threading model. Creating a thread with STA is easy. In the thread function I created my hidden form holding the OCX and called the ShowDialog() method to have it load. The problem is that the form_load event is not called. The form constructor is called though.

I know that a windows service cannot have a gui but is it possible to have a hidden form? Maybe the problem is the ShowDialog() call? However if I don't do that then the thread terminates immediately. Maybe there is no message pumping loop? Since there is no "application" object I can't use application.run on the form. Basically, I am trying to have another thread manage it's own forms using its own message loop. Is this feasible?

ActiveX Control Won't Start?

Apr 27, 2009

I created an ActiveX Control in ATL, which I can succesfully use in for instance Internet Explorer. When I want to put that object in a VB.NET (2003) app, I get some problems.

First I 'Import' the control, using Visual Studio, so there are COM Interop DLLs created. Then I insert the control in the toolbox and drag/drop on a form. The control is succesfully created.

However, when I run the VBApp, it crashes. The debugger tells me that it gets a 'Class Not Registered' error.

Same when I create a pushbutton and create the object manually:

Code:
Dim AxQuest3DCtrl As Object
AxQuest3DCtrl = CreateObject("MyControl.MyCtrl.1") //crashes here
If AxQuest3DCtrl Is Nothing Then

Migrate A VB6 ActiveX Control To .net?

Jul 9, 2009

I have a legacy VB6 ActiveX control used in IE to provide control of a parallel-port device from a browser application. I wrote this thing about five years ago; It's a pretty simple control, and it doesn't require a lot of maintenance. However, I've noticed that running the VB6 tools is becoming more and more painful over time, so I'm looking at the possibility of migrating this code to VB.net 2008.This thing is super-simple. It implements IObjectSafety and exposes a single public method, which we call using Javascript. The control has no UI other than a single box with a caption that displays its name and version number-- useful for troubleshooting deployment issues.

How would I create the equivalent in .net? Am I creating an applet? Or a .net Assembly? Any gotchas to look for as I try to make this transition?(I should make it clear here that I'm not either a VB6 programmer or a .net developer-- I've dabbled in this stuff but it isn't my area of expertise, so go easy on me).

MS WebBrowser ActiveX Control?

Is there a more direct, object-specific way to hide the browser's toolbars other than the SendKeys method?

SendKeys "^h", True

How To Play FLV Files With Windows Media Player ActiveX

May 26, 2011

I'm going to build a video player in vb.net, but during the development I've met some complications.

1) The windows media player ocx takes a long time to play the first video, I think for a problem of initialization
2) The window media player ocx doesn't play flv files

The alternative or possible solutions.
1) insert flv codec into the project for window media player ocx, but how?
2) use the flv component, but I don't know with precision what is the right code to use to play video files with the vlc component and sometimes during the dispose of the vlc instance, the system give me a blue screen.....

I know that there are two wrappers for the vlc componet the libvlcnet and the VideoLan DotNet for WinForm and WPF, but i don't find any example on how ti implement and use them in vb.net. Use the ffmpeg video conversion engine for window media player, but how can I implement ffmpeg in vb.net, is there any wrapper or activex for ffmpeg open source?

ActiveX Control (.ocx) Behavior At Runtime?

Dec 31, 2009

I am developing an application in Visual Basic under Visual Studio 2008 Professional. As part of this application I am using a third-party ActiveX control (.ocx file). After building the installer (.msi file) using the deployment tools in Visual Studio, I tested it on a clean system. The install appeared to run successfully--folders are created, files are copied, and the .ocx is registered. However, when I tried to run the application I received an error telling me "You must have a license to use this ActiveX control." This would be expected on the development machine, but should not happen on the client system, i.e., in the runtime environment.

On previous builds of the application, I did not receive this error. Besides updates to the application itself (the part I created, that is), I was using NSIS to create the installer, rather than the tools in Visual Studio. The application cannot run without the .ocx in question, so this error is a show-stopper.

Using The Same ActiveX Control In Different Forms: 2010?

Aug 11, 2011

I am writing a customized data acquisition application in VB2010. The maker of the data acquisition hardware has provided an ActiveX control that has methods, properties, and events that can be used to interface with the hardware device.My problem is that I'd like to reference the same control (ideally the same instance of the control) on multiple forms.

To begin, it is necessary to initialize the device, sending the control information like sample rate, number of channels, etc. Then you can use methods to start or stop getting data and read properties, like the number of samples taken, or an array of the
actual data. The device also provides events, like a DataReady event that fires when a certain number of samples have been taken, and a DeviceError event that fires if the device is not present.

My program will have several forms:

1) a main menu that opens on startup and that should initialize the unit and determine whether it is present.

2) a daily check form that will get values from the device to determine whether the electronics are good.

3) a test setup form that will get values from the device to zero (tare) the input channels.

4) a run test form that will acquire and process the actual test data.

If I include separate instances of the control on each form, I need to initialize and stop the control when the forms open and close. I started to build an interface class that the forms could share and that would deal with all of the methods, but I get tripped up trying to pass the control's events back to the form.

ActiveX Control Using VB6 - Cab File And Html Page

Jul 25, 2011

I've developerd an ActiveX Control using VB6. I've also developed its installer .cab package for web. A simple html code is given below that explain how i use that package in html page

<HTML>

<HEAD>

<TITLE>MyAcrivexControl.CAB</TITLE>

[CODE]...

<!-- If any of the controls on this page require licensing, you must create a license package file. Run LPK_TOOL.EXE to create the required LPK file. LPK_TOOL.EXE can be found on the ActiveX SDK, [URL]. If you have the Visual Basic 6.0 CD, it can also be found in the ToolsLPK_TOOL directory.

The following is an example of the Object tag:

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:5220cb21-c88d-11cf-b347-00aa00a28331">

<PARAM NAME="LPKPath" VALUE="LPKfilename.LPK">

</OBJECT>

[CODE]...

In ideal situation whenever i run this page by typing url like [URL]. it should ask me for download and install the control, but it didn't.
