    COM/DCOM (VB6) components with MTS

    Locked

    by briceb ·

    I have an n-tier application that uses a standard .exe and an ActiveX dll on the Client workstation and two ActiveX dlls on the server running under MTS. Is there a specific order in which these components need to be installed and is there an easy step by step process in which to do it?

      export (create) a MTS client from MTS. installed the client EXE to all your Client workstations. run your application EXE from the clients. that’s it.

        I’ve tried that. Although it does create copies of the DLLs in the Program Files\Remote Applications directory, somehow, I don’t think it’s creating the appropriate registry entries on the client workstation.

      In my experience, the installation order does not matter, just make sure it is all installed. As in the previous answer, you will need to make sure the client has run the …\clients\.exe that is created when the package is exported on the server.

      I’m not clear from your question whether you are having an error or looking for best practices. If you are having an error, you’ll have to discuss the other configuration issues at hand (like “Is you client NT?”) If you are lookingfor best practices, I recommend you install the server dlls and create the MTS package first and then install to your client and incorporate the running of the previously mentioned .exe into the client installation.

        I finally determined that it wasn’t the order or method I was using to install. Since I had never installed an MTS package before, I didn’t realize that it needed a user account to run. I created a userid for it to run under and assigned it and itworked fine. Chalk it up to my inexperience with NT and MTS.

        Thanks to both people who offered an answer to my question.
