Kind Regards

thank you for the quick reply!
currently on laz 1.04 fpc 2.6.0 for win32. What might be the reasons for LazActiveX not being available under the available / installed packages? It also seems I have no such lpk file.

All i could find online so far was this
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=21138 - not sure if this is ready for use.

Your help appreciated

Have a look at the release notes. Perhaps the activex unit was introduced later.

BTW: Lazarus 1.0.6 is out, you might want to upgrade anyway.

It needs atleast FPC 2.6.1 (2.6.0 is very old anyway)

If you use 64bit Lazarus, then you need FPC 2.7.1 and compiled with OPT=-dTEST_WIN64_SEH

And you propably want to have this too.

Uses math;

SetExceptionMask(GetExceptionMask + [exOverflow] + [exZeroDivide] + [exInvalidOp]);

... oh yeah. I remember the FPC requirement is mentioned in the documentation:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/LazActiveX#Installing

You could try a snapshot with FPC 2.6.1 or 2.6.2

hi thanks for the replies - yes I see now it requires 2.6.1.
I checked the laz snapshots and found

Lazarus + fpc 2.6.1   win32   Lazarus-1.1-40354-fpc-2.6.1-20130220-win32.exe

but the link seems to be down at the moment - anywhere I can report this?

Im hoping this release will have the activex package as well

Regards
