As a minimum, you must add the the IUnknown interface to your VC++ application and implement the QueryInterface(), AddRef(), and Release() functions to IUnknown. My guess, however, is that this is not really your question.  I'm assuming that you have some VC++ non-COM or ActiveX program and would like to get it into the "ActiveX" world.  Obviously, there a lot to this whole subject and it's not a trivial answer.  I'd suggest you spend some time familiarizing yourself with the technology.  The following resources are very useful:

1) Inside COM by Dale Rogerson.  This gives you the basics behind COM in a clear, simple format.  It's easy reading, the examples are comprehensive.  Start here and the rest will be easy.

2) Next, I'd suggest reading Kraig Brockschmidt's Inside OLE (2nd Edition).  This extends COM to cover OLE and is the definitive reference on this subject.  No COM, OLE, or ActiveX developer should be without it.

3) Finally, get ActiveX Controls Inside Out by Adam Denning.  This gives you all the details on how to use COM and OLE technology to build ActiveX control for your web pages, applications, or whatever.

All of these books are published by MS Press and should be easy to find.  I realize it's a lot of reading but getting into ActiveX is not a 30 minute tutorial and a couple of Developer Studio settings (at least not yet).

Hope this helps.
