    ActiveX plugin c#

    Hi has anyone written an active-x plugin for iNews in managed c# .net?

    Funny thing is, I did and it was working, and as I started to expand out the functionality I did something and now it has stopped working complertly. And it has me stumped.

     

    I can see the entry of my plugin in inews  menu Tools->Plugins but when I select it i get the message "Cannot Create control. May not be installed"

     

    Anyone have any ideas?

     

    Thanks

    Hi

    try to revert to work version and start to troubleshoot from there

    Could it be that you try to load a control created by really old version of Visual Studio?

    Hi, I've done that, even started again with a very basic plugin, but still won't display.

    I am and was always using VS 2017

    could you try to downgrade to VS 2012 please?

    iNEWS client supports VS 2012, this may solve all issues

    Well I worked out what I was doing wrong.

    When I was rgerstering my DLL file with regasm.exe I was not including the /codebase switch.

    Now it works
