Developer Installation Options
The Common Control Objects can be installed in two ways:
Manual "Installation". Download the ZIPped CCO
runtime, which comes in both release and debug versions. Installation
consists of extracting files from the ZIP that you need -- typically a
of the OPOS*.ocx files -- plus registering
these COM objects, typically by using regsvr32.exe. The batch file
Register.bat in the ZIP will register all of the CCOs. (For the
debug version, the batch file RegisterDbg.bat
registers all of the CCOs plus two files needed for generating the trace
Wise Installation: Run the Wise Install program, which will

Windows Installer Installation: Releases beginning 1.13.
InstallShield .msi file, which will prompt you for a few options.
Automated Installation / Uninstallation: Wise 7 Install

and/or application deployment. The CCOs should be marked for

where "TitleOfInstall" appears in the Add/Remove Programs dialog.
An example option file follows. It sets the destination directory, omits file
backups, installs only the Control Objects, and sets the Add/Remove Programs
Run the Wise uninstall program that is placed at the destination path
plus "CommonCO\zOposCCOs\UNWISE.EXE". If
your install directory was "C:\OPOS", then
uninstall with the command line:
[Options] C:\OPOS\CommonCO\zOposCCOs\INSTALL.LOG [Title]
where Title is the window title
displayed during uninstall, and the relevant Options are:
/Z Remove empty directories, including one with unwise itself in it
/A Automatic mode, no user choices other than cancel
/S Silent mode, automatic mode with no user choices
/U Like automatic mode, but gives all choices other than custom/automatic
