Design Master General Components

Posted on January 22nd, 2010. Last updated on June 14th, 2023.

When Design Master is installed on a network, the Design Master General Components file must also be installed once on each computer that runs one of our CAD-based add-ins.

This file adds some controls necessary for our dialog boxes to work and the database drivers for 64-bit operating systems.

What is Included

The following are the specific files installed:

  • Slide.ocx: An ActiveX DLL for displaying slide images in a dialog box. This component was written by Autodesk and provided to 3rd-party developers.
  • Jet64.exe: A 32-bit ActiveX executable used to connect to the Microsoft Jet Database from 64-bit AutoCAD. This component was written by Design Master Software.
