"You don`t have a license to use this ActiveX control"
what should I do to use this control???
or is there any replacement??

thanks

Mohammed.

If you just copy MsComm32.ocx and register, it would complain about the
license. You have to install Visual Studio 6.0 Licensed version for it to
work properly.

Mohammed,

When you add MsComm32.ocx in .NET, it will create MSCommLib for you. You can
include that namespace and code it in c#. But to get that control, you need
Visual Studio 6.0.

Unfortunately the design time license for mscomm32 is only available as part
of visual studio, so unless you have a licensed copy of visual studio you
cannot use the mscomm32 library at design time.
