GdPicture.NET series of toolkits and plugins provide both .NET and ActiveX controls. Besides .NET platforms, you can use them in many other different platforms such as HTML page, SilverLight app., Visual FoxPro, Delphi, VB6, MSAccess and all other IDE supporting ActiveX.

Please do not expect different/separate packages for each of them, they are not delivered as separate entities (i.e. one for .NET and another one for ActiveX).
Everything is in one package and your license key (either demo or commercial) unlocks both .NET and ActiveX features.

ActiveX features are provided via COM Interop, located in your GdPicture.NET installation at: …\GdPicture.NET 11\Redist\COM Interop
The installation folder also contains code samples subfolders (… \GdPicture.NET 11\samples\AnyCPU ) such as “HTML using com interop”, “vb6 using com interop”, “delphi using com interop” and so on.
Please read the readme.txt files where available so you quickly understand how to use COM interop.
