OCX in XE vs XE6

I have C++Builder XE and XE6 installed, and I want to create an ocx.

First I go to 'File - New' and add an ActiveX Library. The project manager tells me the output will be ProjectName.dll.
Then I go back to the file menu add an Active Form.

In my XE installation the output extension now changes from dll to ocx. But in XE6 it still says dll.

And also if I take an ocx-project made in XE and opens it in XE6, the extension changes to dll.

Any idea what is different between XE and XE6? How can I create an ocx with XE6, any settings somewhere?

Regards, Tomas
