Distribution of the ActiveX Control with your own programs

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

If you create an application with a development environment like Visual Studio using the ActiveBarcode ActiveX Control (OCX) and want to distribute, you must make sure that certain files on the target system are installed.

Your are only allowed to distribute the ActiveX Control of ActiveBarcode (activebarcode.ocx). If you distribute other files, as for example the ActiveBarcode Generator 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.

To setup the control (activebarcode.ocx) to the target system, you should use the MSI installers that are included in the full version of our product. The installers for the 32bit and 64bit version of the control are named as follows:
  • ActiveBarcode-Control6.?.?(x86).msi
  • ActiveBarcode-Control6.?.?(x64).msi
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.

Additional info

If you do not want to use our MSI installation packages to setup our barcode control to the target system:
  • You can use your own setup tool. A lot of installations tools (as for example Inno setup) can setup and register the control during the installation.
  • You also can setup the control manually: When copying the control manually, you need to register the ActiveX Control (OCX) in the system before it can be used. You can do this from the command prompt (with administrator rights) with the following command: regsvr32 activebarcode.ocx
