OCX\DLL COM object? - Mac Networking

    Default OCX\DLL COM object?

    Hi,

    I am a competent Windoze user\programmer (please dont hold that against me),
    and recently the company i work for has started an alliance with another
    company who run MAC OS9 exclusively on their servers.

    Our company has a DLL\OCX COM object that (ideally) we would like to use on
    the MAC OS9 servers, however obvioulsy this is not going to happen.

    What i want to know is what options (if any) we have. The COM object is
    written in Visual Basic 6, and i know im grasping at straws but i was
    wandering if anyoen has any ideas on how we can somehow port\compile so it
    will be MAC compatible?

    Is there any hope?!!

    Depending on the nature of this object, your best bet might be to run
    Virtual PC on the Macs, and use the object as-is.

    Alternately, consider RealBasic (<http://www.realsoftware.com/>) a
    VB-esque environment for Macs that even MS has been known to use for Mac
    development.

    Thanks Tom. Ive since been told that the OCX has Win32 API calls in it, so
    im not sure its going to work, but i'll give it a go.

    Thanks

    It might mean that you need to do some porting work, but using RealBasic
    should make the job easier than it would otherwise be.
