How can I recompile a activex dll without having to recompile all exes that use that dll? : LUSENET : MW Software's Visual BASIC Descusion System : One Thread

In my project, I have an activex dll. When I make a change and recompile it, I receive runtime error 430 from all exe programs that call it, until I recompile those programs too. What do I have to do to the dll or exe so I don't have to go through the recompile process each time I make a little change?

Read up on 'binary compatibility' in the help files.

Bascially, you need to keep the same classid each time you compile your dll, setting binary compatibility will accomplish this.
