Distributing your Applications

If you create a setup program for your VB application with the Package and Deployment Wizard that is part of Visual Basic 6, all redistributable files will be included automatically.

In case you wish to use a different setup toolkit or install TX Text Control on a server, the lists below shows all the files necessary for Text Control to operate properly. You must ensure that the files exist on your client's machine and they are the proper version. If your client's machine has older versions of these files, you should update them.

Group 1: TX Text Control core files:

Group 2: TX Text Control text filters:

Group 3: Microsoft foundation class library:

Group 4: Microsoft XML parser:

The files listed in the first and second group are the TX Text Control DLL files. All of these files can be found in the \bin subdirectory of your TX Text Control installation directory. They must all be installed in the same directory and you must always install all of them. The first file is the Text Control ActiveX server containing the ActiveX controls. These controls must be registered in the registration database on your client's machine.

You should also verify that the Microsoft foundation class library files (group 3) are installed on your client's computer. These files must be installed in the Windows system directory. Please refer to Microsoft's redistribution policy if you need to redistribute them.

The files listed in the last group (group 4) contain the Microsoft XML parser and are necessary to use Text Control's XML features. These files must be installed in the Windows system directory. Please refer to Microsoft's redistribution policy if you need to redistribute them.

The following files must be registered in the registration database on your client's machine:

To register the Text Control ActiveX on a server the command line tool txregsvr.exe must be used as described in the next section.
