Using IE 4.01 as an ActiveX control

Here's a fairly easy one... I'm looking to use IE as an ActiveX control in my application.  Is this possible and if so where can I find some docs on it?  I haven't seen anything on MSDN's site so I didn't know if this was still a possible thing.

Also, knowing what files that need to be distributed for would be a really, really good thing.

Thanks in advance...

Randy,

  You need to create an automation application that is a doc object container. Then associate the extensions .htm and .html with iexplore. The container will inplace activate IE. You might also look at the mshtml active-x control which is a subset of IE

You will only need to make sure the user has IE installed.

Hope this helps
