    Registering an ActiveX Bean control...

      Dear All,

      I've done a little searching around for people in similar situations, but all I could find were a number of people with similar problems, alas without solutions.

      Here we go:

      I've followed the steps outlined here (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/beans/axbridge/developerguide/index.html) to build a Bean and wrap it up into an ActiveX DLL.

      I have managed to build the DLL, but when it gets to the end of the compilation process (or by using regsvr32), it comes up with:

      "Registration failed:
      The packages JavaBean is not located under the directory <jre_home>\axbridge\bin"

      My environment is configured thus:

      JRE_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11

      The DLL is inserted in:

      C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\axbridge\bin

      and is located alongside the original jar.

      Also, to add to the mix, this is being performed on a Vista machine, and I have tried running this as an administrator.

      Any help would be much appreciated.
