Server for activex dll


I have some activex dll’s that were written in vb that I want to use via EntireX.

In the documentation it’s stated that you can enable a dll to be called as a server but I can’t find an example.

Is it possible and how do I do it?

Look at the examples that come with EntireX for Windows (C:\Program Files\Software AG\EntireX\Examples\Broker RPC\Server). Read the README.TXT file. It explains how to start an RPC server for dexample.dll. Then you can use one of the supplied clients (C single-threaded, C multi-threaded, COBOL, or NATURAL) to test your RPC server.

You need to be aware that the RPC Server can only call DLLs using the standard calling conventions. It is not possible to call an ActiveX component using the ActiveX/COM interfaces.

Thanks Rolf,

My c skills are very basic and I wasn’t aware that there was a difference between calling the two types of dlls.

At least now I know.

Thanks again,
