Activex codebase #Version issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-616554899 posted

    Hi,

    I have created Activex control for FTPcontrol (upload and download the files). Now the next thing I need to implement is version control. i.e when we update Activex version on server the prompt should come with message "Updated Activex version "2.0.0.1" is available. I referred different forums but didn't find the exact solution. Reffered links are:

    the .inf file structure is:

      

    [version] 

    signature="$CHICAGO$" 

    AdvancedINF=2.0

    [FTPControl.dll]
    clsid={873355E1-2D0D-476f-9BEF-C7E645024C32} 
    FileVersion=32,0,40310,1



    [Setup Hooks] 

    install=install 

    [install] 

    run=msiexec.exe /package """%EXTRACT_DIR%\FTPControlsInstaller.msi""" /qn

    I am updating the version of FTPControl.dll and in the codebase tag ' classid="clsid:873355E1-2D0D-476f-9BEF-C7E645024C32" codebase="../FTPControlsInstaller.cab#Version=32,0,40310,1" '

    But the issue is that the prompt is coming in every page load.

    I am unable to find which version it is comparing according to the referred psudo code. Please suggest any idea or solution if anybody have

    Thanks,

    Ajay Vishwakarma

    Hi AJAY,

    Thanks for your post!

    This forum is to discuss problems of using VS and VWD Express for ASP.NET development. Your question is not related to the topic of this forum.

    I suggest that, you could consider posting it in Internet Explorer Development forum for more efficient responses.
