I've made an ActiveX control using VB2005 that is a series of Label controls that scroll up. It's a very simple control and I've validated functionality within VB. I created a signature for the assembly (strong name key). I then made an installer which puts the compiled dll into the target OS's Program Files directory.

After installation, I don't see the control available from a list of ActiveX controls for Excel. I then used the gacutil.exe and successfully installed the dll within the GAC. (Strong name key worked! woohoo) But, Excel still didn't show it in the list of registered ActiveX controls. I selected to point to the dll directly and was told it's not Self-Registering.

I'm on a deadline to get this control working and to our plant install by today and REALLY NEED HELP!

This is a .Net dll and is not registered in the normal activex way. You will need to make it com-interop visible.
