View Full Version : type library for ax files

October 6, 2005, 23:36:42
I am using IC Imaging Control ClassLib v 1.4 to build a Visual C++ 6.0 application. I am also building a Visual Studio Installer (msi) application to distribute the VC++ application and all the required (tca, dll, ax) files on a client machine. VS Installer recommends using "Associations" to properly register components (ovlip.ax, mediasamplegrabber.ax, UYVYTrans.ax), but doing so requires a type library for each component. The registry editor does not indicate a type library for these files on the development system. Are type libraries available for the ax files?

AX files are filters, they have no type library. They are only to be registered with
regsvr32 ovlip.ax


If the msi Install is too complicated, try the freed Inno setup. I found it easy to use. You can download it from
