Hello,
How can I display animated GIF files in a Win95 application? I'm working with Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0. I'm able to display a GIF file, but it's not animated.

Thanks

How can I embed the SHDOCVW.DLL? All I want to do is to display a little animated GIF while executing caculations from another executable. It's just like when you compile a Help Project File with the Microsoft Help Workshop (you see a little animated picture but I don't know if it's a GIF file). I can't use a progress bar so that's why I want to use an animated GIF.

That's the Windows common animation control which displays a clip in AVI format. Look into the MFC class CAnimateCtrl.

Ok but how can I embed the SHDOCVW.DLL component of Internet Explorer?

Commented:
Use the Components and Controls Gallery to insert the Microsoft Web Browser Control into your project. Look into the Visual C++ Programmer's Guide about ActiveX Control Containers.
