    hi,

    has anyone used the Windows Media Player plug-in in their VB programs?

    if yes, then whats the files that I need to include in my setup so that the application will work okay elsewhere?

    VB setup found "msdxm.ocx" as a file needing to be included along with my application. BUt does anyone know if thats the only needed file inorder for my Windows Media Player based functions in my program to work okay?

    what about future releases of Windwos Media Player? would that affect my application? or would msdxm.ocx be the same one. i.e. fine. I found that its based on the 6.4 release.. and found that when I upgraded to release 7... it did not affect my application.. but anyone know anything else they can add to this maybe?

    if anyone can atleast answer any question they know from above... that would be very helpful

    thank you!

    If the end user has an up to date version of Media Player you should be ok, are you using the P&D Wizard to create your setup? that should give you a good listing of dependencies...
    of course you'll need the normal vb runtime files

    I'm thinking of a number between

    Yes it was a Media Presentation that played 4 seperate videos for local businesses, the main problem i ran into was they didn't want to install it on any PC's they just wanted it to be playable from cd rom without installing anything at all, which isn't very possible
