Default Windows 98 OCX control issues vs Windows XP

Solution 1:
=======
I tried to fix the security problem using "dcomcnfg.exe" in Windows 98, which I installed from Microsoft site.

Solution 2:
=======

Also, it is noticed that in VB.OCX control, I am trying to use a server using the users computer name, which I was using the following functions.

' For finding computer name
Environ(5)
or
Environ("ComputerName")

Both of the above functions in VB, exactly returns the user computer name in XP,NT etc....But, in Windows'98, it wont.

So, I redesigned the program, which will retrieve computer name from the Windows Kernel32.dll file. The function name used to find the computer name in Kernel32.dll is "getComputerName".

Solution 3:
=======

I edited the registery, using regedit command. The following registry keys has been updated.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. EnableDCom Y
2. EnableRemoteConnect Y
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Notice that these two commands can also update through dcomcnfg.exe utility.

I think this will helps.

If any other suggestions, either post it or let me know. My email id is benoyraj@yahoo.com

thank you
Benoyraj ;)
