VB 6.0 How to add ActiveX Control (OCX) License ?

Posted 12 May 2012 - 12:24 PM

Hello evry1,
I have created an OCX and i want to deploy it, but im facing a problem here, i want to add license to it.
I have noticed that there is a field in (OCX Project Properties) called (Require License) i think what i need relies there but i really dunno how to accomplish that.... any suggestions ?!

license is only used if the activex control you make will arrive to a computer used to develop new programs and without that file a user cant use the control in development area, however an already compiled program will run without problems (from the activex control that is) even if the license file dont exist.
this is what i have found so far about this subject.
how to make and add license file i do not know (their ending btw is .lic if i remember right.)

what have you found so far about it?

This takes me back to my MCT days...it's best to use LPK_TOOL to generate a license key. I forget exactly how. You are correct that you also have to check "Require License Key" in your control's properties. This page (easily found by googling "activex control license key") will tell you all about licensing your controls. Don't worry about the big code blocks, just read the general information and read up on LPK_TOOL in the appendix.

Neku, this page will tell you that there are both design time and runtime licenses.
