Hello, I'm really new at all this so don't laugh too much at my stupid question. :)

I am trying to embed the latest version of Ultimate Grid into Automation software that supports ActiveX components.

I've downloaded all of the zip files for Ultimate Grid and Ultimate Toolbox.
However, when I unzip all of those files, I do not see any .OCX files used for ActiveX embedding?

All I find is C++ source files and build files?
I'm not sure how to take the source files from those downloads an build them into an ActiveX component/file to use in my application? :confused:

I guess I don't know how to build the DLL file that I then could register as an Active X component.

Sorry, but I don't have a concept on how all of these components work together.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I've taken the project and was able to build UGMFCU.dll. I cannot register this file in Windows, so how can I take this and embed as an ActiveX object?

It's easy if you read the first couple of sentences on the project page here: The Ultimate Grid Home Page[^]

"We are very happy to announce that we have made the decision to offer our commercial lineup of MFC libraries, including Ultimate Toolbox, Ultimate Grid, and Ultimate TCP/IP to the community free of charge. "

There is also a zipfile for download with sample code. I don't really know where you are having issues.
