I am trying to use an active X called Active Label
( http://www.newobjects.com/product.asp?Category=73 ) to print easily labels from my flash (AS3) kiosk application.
Although the activeX works pretty well in a webpage, it does not work at all with SWF Studio. I receive a "Error (3) : failed to create active X object".
I have checked the use of another activeX (basically the pdf reader) and everything is ok.
Does someone know what the problem could be?
Thanks for your answers. :)
This may seem obviousl, but make sure you install the control.
Not all ActiveX objects may be created using SWF Studio. To check to see if your ActiveX object can be created before you do any coding, open ActiveX Info, an application accessible from SWF Studio (click the arrow next to the Help button and then click ActiveX Info).
If your control is not listed there, then your SWF Studio application will not be able to create it.
I just added a new problem report about this error creating ActiveX object. It was reported and fixed a while back, but I forgot to add the report. If you need this fix immediately, email your serial number to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you a copy of the latest development build.
I guess it is properly installed because it appears in the ActiveX Info and it works on a local webpage I build.
I have checked the repport you mentioned. I am indeed using Win Vista.
At the moment, I have no serial number and I am using the trial. I really consider buying a licence but providing it is the first time I use SWF Studio I would like to be sure it will work fine before any expense. For my project, controling label printings (and I have not found any other way than through an ActiveX) is crucial and I hope I can achieve that with your soft (otherwise I will have to check that with others swf2exe).
thanks for your help.
It's not that anything is registered incorrectly, it's just done differently by some controls on Vista. Send us your email and I'll make a trial version of the development build for you to try.
