Information for developers

EnterpriseInfoTo use this functionality you require the Enterprise Edition

Distribution of the ActiveX Control with your own programs
e.g. developed with C++, C#, Visual Basic, Delphi etc.

The following information is only for owners of the Enterprise Edition. If you own a Standard Edition, you have no license to distribute any files.

If you create an application with the ActiveBarcode ActiveX Control (OCX) and want to distribute, you must make sure that certain files on the target system are installed or exist.

Your are only allowed to distribute the ActiveX Control of ActiveBarcode (activebarcode.ocx). If you distribute other files, as for example the ActiveBarcode Application or a license file (*.lic), this is an offense against the license. Please always be sure, that you only distribute the files you are allowed to.

The ActiveX Control (OCX) must be registered in the system before it can be used. You can do this from the command prompt with the following command:

regsvr32 activebarcode.ocx

Open the command prompt with administrator rights, otherwise the registration in the system can fail.

This application (regsvr32) is included with Windows. A lot of installations tools (as for example Inno setup) can do this registration during the installation, so that the above manual registration is not necessary.

Please note that you have no permission to distribute an application that's exclusive purpose it is to create barcodes.

Required runtime libraries

ActiveBarcode requires some runtime libraries of the "Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Package" to run properly. If you run the full setup (.exe, not the MSI) of ActiveBarcode these runtime libraries are automatically installed when not already present.

If you distribute ActiveBarcode with your application, you'll need to ensure for yourself that the runtime libraries on the target system are available.

You can download an installer for the "Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Package" at Microsoft.

We'll provide a direct link to the download page of Microsoft soon.
