Frequently Asked Questions

HTML Editor ActiveX
Q. When I try to run the sample project I get a run-time error 713?
A. In the sample VB6 projects in versions 1.0.8 and earlier the editor control was data-bound, requiring the MS data binding collection to be installed on your machine. Please download the newest version, the sample project does not contain any data bound files. If you wish to see a data bound usage of the Editor control version 1.0.10 contains a MS-Access sample where the control is bound to memo field.
Q. Why is the nag-screen displayed to end-users in my deployed appllication?
A. You need to include the rHTMLEditor.lic file from your system32 directory in the deployment package. This file must be copied by the installer to the end-users system32 directory. Version 2.0 and greater of the activeX now supports a setLicenceKey() method that can be used as an alternative to the licencing file.
