I had one ocx say A which was registered in my machine and being used in application say App1. I have upgraded the same A to say A+ and used in application App2. Now my problem is if i register A+, A un-registered and vice versa. Because orinally both were same ocx. I want my both application App1 and App2 to use these activex controls independently.

I've read some of related article like creating manifest file etc. But i want an easy way to solve the problem.
Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated. as this is an urgent problem.
