ocx file that is needed when the users run the application. Before creating
the exe and pbds we check the Browser OLE tab to see that the correct file
is registered. All is fine. But after we create our exe and pbds we again

We have developped an application with PB 6.5 which included some OCX
(DynaZip, Imaging and another dedicated to secure payment with visa card).
It worked fine under PB 6.5 whatever the OS we were using (95, 98, Me, NT).
We've migrated under PB 8.5 and now we get errors trying to access external
functions of OCX.
With the dynazip OCX, the behaviour is nearly correct but arguments seem to
always be passed by value (and no more by reference).
