Distributing OLE Applications
When you create and distribute applications that use the OLE control, you should install the following files in the customers Microsoft Windows \SYSTEM directory:
The OLE control can be used only on systems running Microsoft Windows version 3.1 or later.
You also need to make sure OLE 2.0 is registered on the users machine and that SHARE.EXE is installed in the users AUTOEXEC.BAT file (SHARE.EXE is not required if the user is running Microsoft Windows for Workgroups). Use the SetupWizard to create distribution disks that do this. When specifying files to distribute, choose Add OLE Files from the Options menu.
To install OLE 2.0 without using the SetupWizard or the Setup Toolkit
1. Check to see if OLE 2.0 has already been installed. If OLE2.DLL is on the users machine, then OLE 2.0 has already been installed. If the user does not have the most current version of OLE2.DLL, you can install the new version using the following steps.
2. Copy the above files to the users \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.
3. Register OLE 2.0 using the following command line:
REGEDIT /S OLE2.REG
