adding to .NET

so, say you’ve built a win32 ActiveX.exe control (NOT a .dll and you need to attach it to your win64 (Win7, in my case) .NET project....
Add a reference to it!

 

Well, after you’ve registered it.

 

Open a shell with admin-priviledges and execute the following:

\path\to\ActiveX.exe /regserver

 

If you’ve previously added the component to your project, and need to re-register a new version

\path\to\ActiveX.exe /unregserver

 

then

 

\path\to\ActiveX.exe /regserver

 

 

I’m not clear on whether you need to unregister/re-register for a new build. Perhaps only if binary incompatible?
Or maybe always, particularly if you’ve set project properties to copy into the build folder.
