For a Microsoft Office 2000 Developer version of this article, see 279098.
Both Microsoft Office 97 Professional Edition and the stand-alone version of Microsoft Access 97 have a Calendar ActiveX control that you can use in Microsoft Office applications. However, you are not licensed to redistribute the Calendar control unless you own a licensed copy of Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition.
Even though the Calendar control is included with Microsoft Office 97 Professional Edition and the stand-alone version of Microsoft Access 97, you cannot redistribute the Calendar control (MSCAL.OCX) in a custom application unless you have purchased a copy of Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition.
If you do not own a licensed copy of Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition, but plan to distribute your application to users who own either Microsoft Office 97 Professional Edition or the stand-alone version of Microsoft Access 97, your application will work properly if the users have installed the Calendar control.
There is a newer version of the Calendar control that you can use in any host that supports ActiveX controls; for example, Office 97 applications, Visual Basic, and HTML pages. The control may be freely distributed under the conditions of the End User Licensing Agreement, a section of which is reproduced below:
Reproduction and Distribution. You may reproduce and distribute an unlimited number of copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT; provided that each copy shall be a true and complete copy, including all copyright and trademark notices, and shall be accompanied by a copy of this EULA. Copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT may be distributed as a standalone product or included with your own product.
You can download this new version of the Calendar control from the Microsoft Web Site at:
For a list of files that you can distribute with your run-time application, search the Help Index in Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition Tools for "files, distributing with run-time application."
