can i use installshield to deploy an ocx?

P: n/a
Hi!

Can I use the InstallShield to build an installer to deploy an OCX
control that I have created? If so, how? Does anyone know any links to
this kind of information. I have Visual Studio 6 enterprise edition,
Visual C++ 6.0 enterprise, and InstallShield for Microsoft Visual C++
6.0.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Donald

Surely you can. Just check out info regarding InstallShield. Nothing
special about distributing OCX compared to other kinds of files, except
self-registering OCX. Be prepared to see an inflated file size times more
than that of the original OCX. Also, I remember that Windows 95 (version?)
had an issue like having to reboot PC after registering an OCX. Otherwise,
the OCX is not accessible though all entries in registry look there.

Please don't pollute comp.lang.c++ with off-topic answers. The C++
standard does not define "ocx" or "InstallShield".
