Alright, I actually emailed someone at /n software support about
this, and got a fairly prompt and helpful reply, which I'll quote in
part for the benefit of the group:
To register ActiveX libraries from this toolkit onto the device,
you'll need to use the Control Manager application provided with
Embedded Visual Basic.
Please open the control manager (under the tools menu), and add the
control to the device you are working with. You also need to add
the desktop version of the control under Desktop Controls in the
Control Manager. You may be able to use a similar Control Manager
in NSBasic, but you will need to consult NSBasic support about what
tools are available.
Alternatively, you can use the OK property of the object to license
the objects at runtime. On your development machine, make a button
or something that will print the value of the 'ok' property.
The 'ok' property will be
like any other property that you would print.
Now, run your program to find the value of the 'ok' property, it
will be a long string of characters.
At runtime on the device, before you use any of the controls, set
the 'ok' property of each control you use to that string. ex:
http1.ok = 'ASDFASDFASDGFAGASDFASDFA'
This should fix your problem. Hope this helps!
So, it sounds like my notion about using a property was on target,
and that the 'ok' property isn't listed in the regular documentation.

On a whim I brought up VB6 and added some IP#Works controls. They
seem to work just fine. That got me thinking that maybe I
the wrong package so I went back and made sure I grabbed the 2002
activeX for pocktetpc. I uninstalled what I had and re-installed
new download but there's no change so I'm pretty sure I have the
I do have an email with what looks like registry entries in it but
it just says to use it if I have to re-install at a later date.
have to have another look at that tonight.
I've never seen anything that talks about using a key like you do
with Franson serial and Visual Basic doesn't seem to require it to
add the controls and see the properties (haven't actually run
anything with VB though).
I think it would be good if George updated the NSBasic site with
some instructions. For that matter, get some links from the regular
pages to the IP*Works pages as nsbasic.com. I had to use google to
find the IP*Works announcement/instructions at the nsbasic site.

I thought I saw something about this a while ago, either on the
or the NSBasic site, but now I can't find it, and I'm wondering
was imagining it... something along the lines of 'you need to
project on your desktop that uses IP*Works, and access such-and-
property to find your licence key, and then you can write that
key into your NSBasic CE projects manually, assigning it to the
property. But now I can't even see a likely-looking property to
Does what I'm talking about sound familiar to anyone else?

I installed IPWorks on my desktop computer, created a simple
NSBasic CE and uploaded it to my CE machine. Although I
activeX controls the CE program complains that they don't
tried copying the ocx file to the CE machine and registering it
regsvrce which made the program stop complaining but now its
day trial popup (which I'm assuming its not supposed to do).
Is there something I need to do in NSBasicCE other than adding
activex controls to the toolbar? When I drag them onto a form
poperties page for the control is basically blank.
Lost in a fog here. Anyone know how to use this?
