Can't see registered activex control in Import ActiveX list

Having a problem seeing a registered activex control in the "Import ActiveX"
list in builder 4.0.  The control was created using VB 6.0 and shows up fine
in the Microsoft ocx viewer.

Re:Can't see registered activex control in Import ActiveX list


Anybody want to maintain a FAQ? :)

VB controls break one of the theoretical rules for COM: the
function pointers aren't laid out in sequential order, so calls
using vtable mapping fail miserably.

We are aware of the problem and are working on it.

If you import the type library, and only use IDispatch, you can still
talk to the control.
