MTS on Windows 98?

By VBsquared ·
I'm developing my VB6 app on Windows 98 and would like to deploy my activeX dll on a WINNT 4.0 server. My clients are also on Windows 98.

I do not have the MTS type libraries such as mtxas.dll and mtxspm.dll, therefore, I am unable to use MTS-related commands in my code.

Can this be done or do I need to create an ActiveX exe instead? I would much rather deploy my project using MTS as it is much easier than the Package and Deployment Wizard.

The Windows CD ships with PWS 4 (the Windows consumer version of IIS 4). MTS is the core engine for IIS, version 4. COM+ replaced MTS in Windows 2000, but you can still run MTS enabled components under COM+.

Go to Add/Remove programs and then Add/Remove Windows Components (may be worded differently in 9. Choose the web server and add it.

If, for some reason, you do not actually want MTS installed, you can add the libraries. You will find them in the mts1.cab in the add-ons\pws directoryon your Windows 98 CD.

I agree that the P&amp is not a good installer. The version for VS.NET is much better. I prefer MTS for other reasons, but deployment is not a bad reason.

I was initially stumped because pws showed as already being installed. Then I thought I'd try the VB6 enterprise edition, disc 2 and found that not all mts components were installed. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
