I would like to use Microsoft Communications Control to get some data from a serial communication port.
When I try to insert an ActiveX control into my form I get the following message "...to obtain the appropriate licence, contact the company that provides ... (also attached) I'm using XP
Can anyone help, wher can I order this licence etc.
I tryed your proposal, but I guess this only register the mscomm32.ocx for use. It does not give me permission to use the ActiveX function.
By the way, your proposal will probably do the same as if I used the following command within MS-Access:
In MS-Access select TOOLS/ACTIVE X CONTROLS and select
\windows\system\mscomm32.ocx or Microsoft Communications Control and click on the REGISTER button.
My guess is that M. Gates like to get some money from me before I'm alowed to use this ActiveX function in my XP environment. Then the question maybee is; How to pay Mr. Gates ?
(see attachment in my first question)
(No problem when I used this function under 2000)
Bent Th. K.
PS. Where can I find information like the one you proposed , can you recommend any particular book ?
Unfortunately I had none of your proposed products, but you mentioned (some messages ago) that it was licensed in Office 2000 developer. Well I took a chance and installed Access 2000 in addition to existing Access XP. (I also installed Visual C++ V5.0, due to other own dev. SW)
And ….. believe it or not, IT FUNCTION
Again, thanks a lot. Now I will manage to have a good night sleep again. :-)
