Publisher description for ActiveX Manager

ActiveX Manager program icon

ActiveX Manager enables users and developers to manage ActiveX Controls installed on their PC the easy way. It is great for users who surf the Web and want to keep their system clean (ActiveX Manager helps you clean controls installed by Internet Explorer). ActiveX Manager provides a simple yet Slick user interface that enables you to view registered controls, remove misbehaved controls, register new controls and more. ActiveX Manager provides fast access from Windows Explorer via a pop-up menu..1. Easy to use & quick Anyone working with ActiveX Controls (OCX/DLL files) knows that getting them registered and unregistered can be a hassle. Both developers and system administrators often need to quickly register one version of an OCX and seconds later a different version of the same control. Working with REGSVR32 for these kind of operations is OK but tends to be time consuming and is not very informative (to say the least). ActiveX Manager is integrated into Windows Explorer allowing you to very quickly register/unregister controls. 2. Track problems Many of the bugs applications produce end up being DLL/OCX version mismatch. A bad install program (that does not check the OCX version) can hurt a lot well behaved applications. ActiveX Manager allows you to view the attributes of any registered ActiveX Control. Information like File Version, file size or date can help you track down what went wrong. 3. Cleanup the Registry Registering an ActiveX Control and then deleting the file leaves the Windows system in a mess. Visual Basic for example will display the control in its "Component List". The user might think this is a legitimate control. Applications that use this control will crash finding the entry in the registry but not the file. ActiveX Manager clearly marks out these misbehaved controls. Even better it allows you to cleanup the "dead" entries that were left in the registry.
