Home Prev Top Next

To use the Authentic Desktop ActiveX controls in an application developed with Visual Studio, the controls must first be added to the Visual Studio Toolbox, as follows:


1.On the Tools menu of Visual Studio, click Choose Toolbox Items.

2.On the COM Components tab, select the check boxes next to the Authentic DesktopControl, Authentic DesktopControl Document, and Authentic DesktopControl Placeholder.


In case the controls above are not available, follow the steps below:


1.On the COM Components tab, click Browse, and select the AuthenticControl.ocx file from the Authentic Desktop installation folder. Remember that the Authentic Desktop Integration Package must be installed; otherwise, this file is not available, see Prerequisites.

2.If prompted to restart Visual Studio with elevated permissions, click Restart under different credentials.



If the steps above were successful, the Authentic Desktop ActiveX controls become available in the Visual Studio Toolbox.




Note:For an application-level integration, only the AuthenticDesktopControl ActiveX control is used (see Integration at Application Level). The AuthenticDesktopControl Document and AuthenticDesktopControl Placeholder controls are used for document-level integration (see Integration at Document Level).
