Thursday April 15th, 1999

Neoplanet has made an update to their site, crediting Adam Lock for the work done on his ActiveX wrapper, which was the basis for the wrapper used in Neoplanet's code.

Well heh...most Visual Basic programmers already stopped caring about Netscape, as it's taken them this long for an ActiveX wrapper...However, I'm not one of them. I have tried countless times to use the Netscape 4.x 'Netscape HyperText Document' insertable object, haven't gotten that to work, then I spotted this ActiveX Wrapper.

Well, I can't register (with RegSrv32) the new npmozctl.dll file ,(that 00000000485x error or something), so I used the old, old MozillaControl.dll file, needless to say, it worked. Well, sort of, I went to Adam's ActiveX Wrapper homepage ( <http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/mozilla.htm> ) and saw my problem with the PATH variable stuff, but how in the world am I supposed to understand that? So anyway, I gave up, then downloaded the Neoplanet browser, hoping that would work, and it said 'Cannot generate Netscape browser', so oh well, maybe I'll find a newsgroup or something. :)
