Writing console applications with ActiveX or OpenDeveloper controls

Tech Note: TN0830
Product: ActiveX, OpenDeveloper
Version: > 66
Date Added: 2008-05-13


Console-based ("formless") applications written in C++ or Python (console driven and no user interface) are not compatible with previous versions of ActiveX and OpenDeveloper controls. Methods called on an instantiated ActiveX or OpenDeveloper control fail to work.


The latest versions of ActiveX and OpenDeveloper controls provide support for formless applications. Update to the latest version of ActiveX or OpenDeveloper.
