Subject Re: Fix me: Abnormalities during bootstrap

after removing the following lines in 
../solver/340/ after making a backup copy 
of the original file

File gid_File_Lib_Soactivex
         Dir = gid_Brand_Dir_Program;
         Name = "so_activex.dll";
         Styles = (PACKED);
         UnixRights = 444;

and changing the line
  Files = 


  Files = (gid_File_Lib_Regactivex_Msi,gid_File_Lib_Regpatchactivex_Msi);

I was able to successfully build instsetoo_native which produced an 
OpenOffice_archive, an OpenOffice_SDK and an URE installation package. 
The resulting installation works like a charm...hurray!

and additionally exported DISABLE_ACTIVEX to TRUE within my Cygwin shell environment.

I'm so proud about outcome of my lesson about how to make a Windows 
build you cannot just have to take the time to do it and 
you'll learn a lot.

It would be a benefit for all people doing a build with the 2008 Express 
compiler if the activex module build logic would be modified in a way 
that the module could be deactivated by environment variable.

Kind regards, Joost
