i have developed my app with mapwingis OCX. Now, i want to use that app in a target machine that doesn't have MapWinGis installed it possible?how can i do it?

Anyone has created, on Visual Studio, a setup project that installs the application and the Mapwingis activex on target machine?


Thanks all!

This is my first ever reply on this group. I have similar issue. But Paul pointed out that you can use a standalone MapWinGis-Only Installer on the target machine to install the necessery files needed to run your application. I have downloaded the installer but have not tested it on the target yet. The Installer is at and on the right corner of the page. Did you also get your hand on measurement functions? I'm looking for that too


Good luck

The OCX needs to be registered on the target machine.  A simple install script would do the trick.  To register it just execute the following command through a shell/batch script: "regsvr32 /s MapWinGIS.ocx" (/s is silent, and I suggest removing it test the the install, use /u to uninstall the ocx first).  The OCX's dependencies will need to be located in the same directory as the OCX as well.
