We are trying to figure out how to install the OCX file and register it so the end user of the database can see the application in use. We are placing the file "vsFlex8.ocx" into the c:\Windows\syswow64 folder and using the regsvr32 to register it

There is a separate license (non standard container license) to be purchased to use the ActiveX controls under the VBA environment. Please check with the sales team for more information on
