Multiple Versions of same ActiveX control

Multiple Versions of same ActiveX control

Multiple Versions of same ActiveX control



I don't know alot about ActiveX controls but recently I had an issue where a Microsoft Access Application stopped working because it was using the incorrect version of an ActiveX control on a server. Another application was installed on a server which installed an older version of an ActiveX control. This older version seems to be the one which is now picked up by the Access application even though the correct ActiveX control still exists on the server.

Is it possible for different applications to use different versions of an ActiveX control on the same machine?

Or is it a case where there is 1 version of a particular ActiveX control "registered" on a machine and all applications use this control?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
