I'm trying to add a reference to Microsoft Internet Controls so I can use the shDocVw.dll, but while I can this this through Visual Studio I can not seem to find it using the add reference tab in WLP. If i try to add the shDocVw.dll directly i get a message saying that it expects an assembly manifest?

I'm trying to use:

CODE:
Please log in to see this code.


Also

System.Data.SQLite

I can do this with visual studio but not by clicking on the "reference" button.

What am I doing wrong?

ActiveX/COM is not supported in the WL.NET Editor. It might work if you created a COM wrapper for the library first but making no promises.

Choose "Other assemblies to reference" for this (as most likely SQLite isn't in the GAC).

Let's start with why do you think you need it? If his #4 rank on StackOverflow is worth something, see Hans Passant's definitive answer in this thread:

fwiw, make sure you're running 32-bit Wealth-Lab if you're using COM.

I've downloaded the 64 bit version SQLite

https://system.data.sqlite.org/downloads/1.0.103.0/sqlite-netFx20-setup-bundle-x64-2005-1.0.103.0.exe

and referenced the DLL but I'm getting an error saying it can not find the assembly. It compiles without any errors, but generates the assembly error when I try to run the program.

added using System.Data.SQLite;

Are the any examples in the forum where SQLite may have been used?

Here's a trick for full-text search: prepend your Google query with site:www.wealth-lab.com/Forum/Posts/. In other words your search query on google.com should look like site:www.wealth-lab.com/Forum/Posts/ sqlite
