OISClientLauncher Control

When you install Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint™ Services on a client computer, an ActiveX control is registered automatically. The ID of the control is "OISCTRL.OISClientLauncher" and it does not have any properties or methods. It is only used to pass on parameters to OIS.exe, the Microsoft Office Picture Manager executable file.

The following Microsoft Visual Basic® Scripting Edition code shows the typical usage of this control.

Set OISClientLauncher = CreateObject("OISCTRL.OISClientLauncher")
fClientInstalled = IsObject(OISClientLauncher)
if (fClientInstalled = True) Then

In this example, cmdLine is a string. The control will verify that cmdLine is well-formed and safe before it passes it on to OIS. OIS will perform its own check on cmdLine. What follows is a description of the syntax of the OIS command. The call returns nothing.

OIS Command Line Parameters

There are four modes for calling OIS.EXE from the command line. The modes take the following parameters:

  • upload folder_url (string)
