ActiveX: Permission denied (Error 70)

A Chilkat ActiveX user (in VB6) was struggling with a “Permission denied (Error 70)”. It occurred on the very first call to a Chilkat method (UnlockBundle).


The solution is that the ActiveX DLL somehow did not have read + execute permissions.  The 1st access to a method in the ActiveX triggered the runtime to load the DLL, and this is what caused the “Permission denied”.   The permissions on the DLL file did not allow for it to be read.
